Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, I studied computer science and started my career as a developer. I slowly made the transition to designer and now I’m happiest creating user interfaces, design specifications, wireframes, workflows, prototypes, usability studies and high fidelity mockups in an agile environment.
I'm currently a product designer at Nextivity in San Diego, California. I really enjoy being at a smaller company and having a wider range of responsibilities. I manage multiple mobile app projects, an iOT web portal interface, as well as marketing and branding activities.
Before that I was at Intuit where I worked closely with the senior marketing managers to come up with new business model strategies for TurboTax. My role was to take these strategies and create interfaces and working prototypes that can be used in usability studies. I also spent 3 years as a Sr. UI designer for Hewlett-Packard. I was responsible for leading multiple R&D projects to meet branding and functional requirements to support various new businesses ventures. I got experience in responsive web design and mobile app design.
