Strategy & Design, Improving Experiences

Award-winning creative with over 10 years of strategy and design, improving experience.

Throughout my career, I had prided myself on being a multidisciplinary designer. Starting out in advertising, I learned the value of a big idea. I moved into marketing where I learned how to match that idea to an identified need space. In corporate communications I gained experience in crafting materials that would communicate big ideas to internal stakeholders and then in packaging where I crafted those concepts visually for end users to buy.

My focus and passion have always been on the way people experience ideas.

User experience and user interface design was a natural move. I’ve been doing it ever since, working for a technology firm in the healthcare space, striving to make experiences great and improve people’s lives.

I am currently the Creative Director and User Experience Lead at Zillion Group, a platform for healthcare professionals to provide ongoing digital care for high risk patients. I lead the design team in collaboration with a multidisciplinary group of business analysts, front end developers and engineers to create products that make complex actions easy for users. I help make healthcare accessible to all, empowering people to change their behaviors to live healthier lives.
