Head of Design at LendInvest.
With over 14 years experience designing and leading in companies of all sizes, I've worked across 0-1 fledgling startups, scale ups who have found product market fit and multinationals with millions of customers.
Outside of my day job, I co-host the podcast thistbh with Will Thomas where we discuss product design and leadership with people from around the world and I also help run a community for design folk called Triangles, based mostly in and around London; Come join us!
As Head of Design at LendInvest I've embedded design from the ground up and now lead a tightly knit team of designers and researchers while overseeing design strategy, product design and branding across the entire business.
The products and tools we've designed were fundamental to LendInvest's IPO in Summer'21 and continue to be the foundation of the business going forward.
Education First are the market leaders in language education and the people who enable them to hold this title are their world class teachers. Working as part of a team spanning across three continents, I led the design of an internal tool which provides EF's teachers with the world class experience they deserve.
Whilst at Eurosport I led a number of cross team activities which culminated in a rearchitected service IA, a user centric approach to product strategy, their first design system and a unified vision for the experience which would serve their 200M+ users.
