I make and teach
Design Systems.

With 17 years design experience, 8 in systems, my goal is to empower and educate others to level up their Design System thinking.

I’ve built many different types of Systems — including multi-product platforms, branded Systems, even a white label System — oof. More recently I led foundational System updates in the global rebrand for Wise.

My recent career.


2021 - NOW Wise

While at Wise I've led foundational product and marketing updates on a systems level for digital assets and typography in their global rebrand.


2019 - 2021 OVO Energy

At OVO I built a highly adopted, branded Design System. I then redesigned it to become a scaleable white label System for Kaluza, which was used by SSE and other partner brands.

2016 - 2019 SiteMinder

At SiteMinder I led experience design across 5 teams. Redesigned the entire product offering and built a Design System that aligned their 5 core products into one platform suite.
