"Sam is a rare breed of designer who can take an
insight and see it through end-to-end"
Jackson Alsop - Lead Experience & Service designer

About me

I have been a designer for almost a decade, during that time I have worked for a range of companies both large, small, freelance and full time. My experience has led me to understand the importance of design and how to empathise with the end user.

I am passionate about user experience and believe that every digital product should not be boring or hard to use. I enjoy making fun experiences through animation, micro interactions and gaining insights through user testing.
