I am a designer and researcher interested in accessible and equitable technology. Previously, I’ve worked at GDS and Citizens Advice across a range of products, services and graphics.

In my free time, I do things like co-run a training course on power and privilege in design, write a newsletter, collaborate on speculative design projects, help organisations create resources for good digital grantmaking, and I just finished a masters in sociology.

I love collaborating on projects that don’t fit neatly into disciplinary lines. Get in touch if you’d like to work with me.
