I have left my studio head and board room life behind and these days work as a freelancer, usually doing service or product work (usually designing), eulogising-through-soft-coaching agile ways of working, sometimes helping look at operations stuff.

I am currently having a summer break.

I try to write week notes which sometimes mention work and a more specific monthly work note.

I coordinate the Leeds gov design meets, a regular meet-up for people in and around Leeds who are designing and making public services.

I have no upcoming speaking engagements. Get in touch if you would like me to do something. If you have something specific in mind that is a good start too.

I offer up time to mentor through Mega Mentor. Do you need a mentor? Could you be a mentor? Check out the Mega Mentor website and all the mentors offering their time.

If you think I might be able to help you or your organisation please get in touch.


In my free time I:

  1. am a dad
  2. run
  3. watch films and sometimes get to watch TV programmes
  4. read
  5. do gardening
  6. walk the dog
  7. help teach service design at Leeds Service Jams and Leeds GovJams
  8. guide young people to design and make with code and technology at Bradford CoderDojo
  9. write posts on my blog
  10. still support Grimsby Town Football Club
  11. try to follow Brooklyn Nets, despite the five hour time difference
