AboutI’m a Product Designer and Researcher. Currently I'm working as an Innovation Fellow for Design and Creative Technology at the Centre for Digital Citizens. I'm a member of CoCreate research studio in Northumbria University’s School of Design.
I principally work alongside people with dementia, with a focus on hearing and amplifying some of the quietest voices in our community through design. I am interested in supporting communities and exploring citizenship through acts of creativity. I work in partnership with a number of research and community organisations through the CDC, you can find out about my projects with them on The Ageless Citizen website.
If you’d like to chat about getting an idea off the ground, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
