Today, I'm a UX Architect at Salesforce working on our Heroku product and towards making developer experiences better.
Prior to this, I was the Head of Design at GoCardless where I worked for three years on democratising payments for small businesses.
I'm keenly interested in the intersection of design & code and most of my writing reflects this. I like big ideas and hard projects and making something from nothing.
