Since 2015 I have worked as a freelancer. I have mainly contracted on public sector projects, as an interaction and service designer at the Royal Borough of Greenwich, NHS BSA, DWP Digital and HMRC Digital, and helped with leading design at NHS Digital on the NHS Beta programme.
I used to coordinate the Leeds gov design meets, a regular meet-up for people in and around Leeds who are designing and making public services.
I got my first full time job in 1998, starting as a junior web developer on Sporting Life. I got to play with databases full of sport data and work out how to put all that onto the internet as information. It was the best first job I could have wished for.
