Hi I'm Simon.

I’m a senior UX designer with experience from across the BBC and a tech start-up. I’m currently contracting, leading the UX for a new broadcast scheduling tool.


I’ve worked on a range of different products across responsive web and apps. Having a complete view of the design process has given me a broad skillset – from research, strategy and facilitation through to prototyping, design, user testing and development.


I’m used to being proactive and being involved in all aspects of the design process. My experience in both small and large teams has strengthened my ability to communicate clearly and get people behind my designs.


I cycle almost everywhere, I like good food, disco music and architecture. Given a chance I’ll head off surfing or skiing and one day I’ll sail around the world.
