Lead Designer

4½ yrs at Spotify. Optimising for impact and collaboration. Prototyping product strategy with leadership. Making people smile with lyrics and karaoke, chasing growth opportunities in Japan. Scaling decisions and quality with design systems.

15 yrs honing design craft, learning on the job and at the outer limits of my comfort zone. An explorer of the state of the art at Spotify, Microsoft, Nokia, TomTom. 

Learning to influence more broadly as I grow. To emerge from vast, deep explorations with crystal clear strategy. Advocating for design quality in the service of confident consensus. Quality in the service of collaboration & meaningful user impact.

Leading with humility and growth mindset to develop talent at Associate to Senior levels. Looking for opportunities to coach, mentor & lead direct reports.
