I love what I do
I am passionate about my work. I can't emphasise this enough.
I'm the kind of person who wakes up in the middle of the night with an idea that I want to start working on immediately. I'm enthusiastic about delivering the best user experience that I can.
I ask a lot of questions and I'm proactive with ideas. I work hard and I'm proud of the work that I deliver.
I'm particular about words
UX writing is a big part of what I do. I am focused on using the right language to help user achieve their goals.
I write copy that no-one notices. This includes buttons, headers, pop-ups, onboarding, tooltips and instructions.
I'll agonise over a sentence and iterate it until I'm confident I have the most comprehensive and concise wording possible.
I present to humans
UX professionals take a human-centred approach to their designs. I take a human-centred approach to everything.
When I present my work to developers and stakeholders, I want them to really understand my thinking and buy into my designs.
I prefer to use simple language, rather than dazzle with terminology.
I'm always on the move
When I'm not working, I'm either hiking, paddle boarding and adventuring in my camper van, or I'm in my art studio. I recently got into pottery so maybe you'll see me on the Pottery Throwdown some day.
I have a bit of a pot plant addiction, and I love food. Carrot cake is where it's at. I've also never found a chocolate biscuit I didn't like.
