Originally from Ireland; now living in Brisbane, Australia. I work in the area of User Experience (UX) and help businesses to understand the strategic value in User Centred Design in shaping meaningful customer experiences across desktop and mobile. I facilitate customer research, collaborative design workshops, focus groups and usability test sessions (with prototypes and UI designs) to gain insights and opportunities for both businesses and customers.
