As a UI/UX specialist, I align UX & UI creative design concepts with technical front-end know-how. I collaborate with fellow researchers and designers, developers, data scientists and business stakeholders to define and deliver new products and features, translate concepts into living, breathing prototypes, and iterate on interactions and details in pursuit of the best deliverable experience.

I’m currently enjoying my role as Human-Centred Designer at LivaNova’s Digital Innovation Lab, which I started earlier this year. We operate in the MedTech space as a worldwide leader in cardiovascular and neuromodulation solutions. Livanova is dedicated to creating meaningful products and therapies that transform lives each and every day, a place where health innovation truly matters.

I was UX Manager for the Investoo Group before that, where I managed the full remit of UX/UI activities and a small design team. I initially joined their Fintech startup team, successfully delivering an innovative retail investment product to MVP stage for investor funding. That was a blast!

Prior to that, I worked with The British Medical Journal (The BMJ) where I helped design, build and maintain their extensive suite of products. These products help medical organisations and clinicians tackle today’s most critical healthcare challenges.

Earlier in my career, I was part of the UX/UI Design teams at QVC, John Lewis and Disney Media, and worked as a Senior Designer at a digital agency in London. In a previous life, I was also the founder of MCOCDesign, a digital design agency, in Ireland.

I’m a happy UX / UI designer / developer hybrid. I work daily with UX Researchers user-testing and prototyping new concepts, and with engineering teams to help deliver the same.

I’ve studied Human Computer Interaction (HCI) to MSc Level at City, University of London (PG.Dip awarded) and I’m a keen writer who likes to blog about UX/UI design and development. You can read case studies of some of my work here or simply get in touch to say hi!
