I am an experienced IT business analyst, solution designer and end-to-end software product manager with a track record of successful design and delivery with a range of high-profile customers. Taking a leading role in all stages of the product development lifecycle I have applied my creative problem solving, development experience and UX-led approach to work effectively alongside clients, end-users, senior managers and members of design, development and QA teams.

I document, illustrate and articulate requirements to be easily understood by non-technical stakeholders securing round-table buy-in and agreement.
Continuing to work with all stakeholders I craft detailed, yet digestible, specification documents to fuel development and early-adopter marketing.
I work across the SDLC merging Agile & Waterfall approaches to deliver high-quality software deliverables.
With a clear understanding of established user personas, user requirements and proposed user flows, as well as a passion for intuitive user experience design, I get hands-on with the build & front-end development, ensuring quality of our market-leading web and mobile applications.

Working throughout the development lifecycle I am hands-on and active, taking a leading role in:

A collection of the world's best and most desired guitar pedals simplified, stylised and carefully illustrated on one awesome layout. Available as both a poster and as a large-scale t-shirt print this is an essential item for any guitar, rock or music fan.
Hand built with high-quality parts in the same way as Fender built their amps in the 50s, these pedals combine classic circuit designs with hand-picked components to offer rich and varied sounds with some classic, mojo vibe.
Using the same illustrative approach as the Pedal Project poster, each t-shirt highlights one classic pedal from fuzz to distortion, and overdrive to delay.

Staying creative is really important to me and I regularly break out the pencils and paper to explore new and interesting creative avenues.
