I'm an interdisciplinary experience designer, passionate about integrating human-centered design into an experience-driven Brand Strategy.

With experience in Gamification, Marketing, Design Thinking, UX, and CX, I collaborate with teams and organisations to create connections that resonate on a human level, whether it's a bespoke website or creating purpose-driven experience journeys for your teams and customers.

I firmly believe in collaboration and co-creation, avoiding quick fixes and mere checkbox accomplishments.

I'm inspired by those who try to make a positive impact in the world, and in my little corner of the universe - I try to do the same.
