Product design lead currently building MedTrack to end patient medical data fragmentation for Africa's 1 billion citizens.

I shape ideas to scale

Over the past 8 years, I've helped first time and serial founders validate, build and scale their ideas. As a founder myself, I understand the pressure and emotional commitment required to do this. I have also contributed to an exit and numerous successes within the consumer and enterprise space.

I excel at shaping ideas to scale; nurturing products from ideation through to launch and growth. I have a strong background designing experiences for mobile applications, web services and the occasional hobby in print.

I have worked alongside designers and engineers in both startup and multi-national companies to bring products to market. I'm most excited about leading small design teams to shape moonshot projects.
