ABOUT

I am an Essex-based UX Designer with a background in Music Technology and Psychology (BSc Dual Honours). After graduating from my MA in Ethnomusicology (the study of how music manifests in culture), I began to apply my research skills to the world of UX. I am a reliable worker with a keen attention to detail and have practical experience in a diverse range of projects (flexible freelance work, a remote internship at a software consultancy startup, etc). At present, I am looking for my next role in UX research.

 

When I first started to consider my career options, I knew I wanted to do something that was creative and helped people. My voluntary work at Keele Nightline, Disability Solutions and CEN8 (Creative Enterprise Network) encouraged my interest in creativity and the diversity of human experience, alongside my education. These interests converged to fuel my developing interest in UX. Outside of UX, I enjoy composing original music, practising my coding skills and finding interesting ways to tell stories (animation, podcasting, writing - you name it! I have a lot of hobbies).

 
 

UX PROJECTS

I was commissioned as a UX consultant to design and develop a user-friendly, customisable database that catalogues plant growth. The solution is designed to update the client's present method of garden record keeping.

DATAWORKS LIMITED INTERNSHIP

January - April 2020

I interned for four months at a software consultancy startup. As the UX/UI intern, I was responsible for the collaborative design of a B2B SaaS prototype. This involved creating interactive wireframes, facilitating design walkthroughs with company stakeholders and advocating for user research.

INSPIRATOR

May 2018 - Present

I designed and developed a prototype application for songwriters in the final year of my undergraduate degree. The purpose of Inspirator is to provide songwriters with an integrated platform to record compositional ideas. It has since become a passion project that I work on in my spare time.
