I'm a futurist and I'm not afraid of AI and robots. It will all be okay if we put the user first.
When it comes to work I believe in the power of a strong team and thrive in a good tribe. Armed with a passion for design and sustainability. I'm happiest when tackling problems and creating solutions that will have great impact on the future of a business or society.
In my line of work as a creative director and workshop facilitator I know how to foster an environment of open thinking and dialog, pulling the best from people. In addition, as an entrepreneur and someone who has plenty of experience with startups I also understand the many challenges involved in running and maintaining a successful business. I understand the importance of user-centric solutions, the power of systems, and brand consistency, and I also love a good user test.
Form follows function and good design makes all the difference.
