Startup, Product and Design

I'm a career tech startup bloke holding co-founder, product and design roles. I've raised money, built teams from two to over one hundred and conceived, designed and built a number of companies.

Originally from the UK (Essex, near London - also the birth place of Sir Jony Ive), I am a US citizen residing in the Bay Area by way of NYC. I've worked with Ogilvy & Mather, MTV, Charles Schwab, Bank of America, IBM, Nestlé, Post, Medco and of course, a variety of startups.

I'm interested in working with cool people working on interesting projects. From mobile design, to prototyping to concept diagrams for presentations, I'm available for one-off project work through to full-time positions. My most recent pitch deck project successfully raised seed funding which is awesome!

Mobile Design

Need to redesign or refresh an existing user-experience e.g. onboarding or upgrade flow? Anything from an entire project to redesigning existing apps.

Prototypes

Fully functional prototypes that can be explored on a smartphone or in a browser are powerful ways to engage with users, engineers and investors.

UI/UX Flows

Working on a product and need to visualize user journey's? Anything from wireframes in Balsamiq to high-fidelity, realistic mock ups and flows.

Presentations

Have an important concept or message to convey? I've helped many companies with concepts and prentation design. Keynote, PowerPoint or both!
