Working on what’s next

I am currently working on what’s next and exploring a purpose-led digital product company focusing on making a meaningful difference in people’s lives. I am currently refining and validating some early ideas, with a view of building a company with the right people, or joining one at an early stage.

If you find these themes interesting, I would love to hear from you! Please get in touch

In addition to exploring early stage digital product concepts, I work on commercial design and design research engagements through my existing company Volkside.

In my previous role I was a Principal UX Designer at one of Australia’s big four banks, ANZ, for close to four years. In that time, we built up the Digital Customer Experience Team into one of the largest, and the most fun, UX teams in Melbourne. Our team worked on the redesign of the three main digital channels for the bank: the main website, internet banking, and the goMoney mobile app. I have lots of design leadership, financial services and corporate experience from these years.

Professionally, I started in digital back in 1995 as a software developer, with my most recent twelve years in user experience design and research. I have previously worked at agencies, in-house and consultancies on three different continents, as well as run my own companies.
