Currently established in the UK, I have a background in digital communications and content strategy, specifically within arts organisations.
I now use those years of audience-centric skills and reflexes in product development, always conscious of the value of frictionless designs and clear copy.
Special interests include: food (always, even the adventurous kind), media literacy, arts and technology, podcasts, digital ethics, knitting and hikes.
Want to drop me a line?
Learning by doing and learning by listening.
Here's a quick view of people I look up to.
I love having brilliant women as role models.
On inclusive hiring, diversity in professional environments, general good tips:
Stacy Marie Ishmael. Discovered on an episode of podcast Another Round, this former mobile editor at Buzzfeed New York has a great newsletter called Amazing Women. Expect advocacy for diversity in teams, general professional advice and great questions.
For analog data visualisation, visual intelligence and political engagement:
Mona Chalabi. I first discovered Mona Chalabi through her mini-series Vagina Dispatches (aimed at exploring the critically under-documented aspects of female anatomy - a great watch). Data editor at the Guardian US, her unmistakable hand-drawn style makes data feel more approachable, and who wouldn’t love that?
On the same topic, I also very much admire Giorgia Lupi.
For her work on accountability, societal issues connected to digital use, engagement:
Danah Boyd. Don't miss out on her work at Data&Society in New York, and you can hear more about herself and her path as a researcher here.
