About me


I'm a lead product designer (AKA: UX/UI designer) currently working at Microsoft in London. I have 12 years of experience working on applications and games for IOS, Android, Windows, Hololens, Ubuntu Touch, Voice Assistant (Cortana), Xbox One and Playstation 3.

I have experience leading design teams on large projects. My approach is to remove obstacles from the paths of other designers, allowing them to shine as much as possible and acting as a support rather than a point of sign-off.

My approach to design is always practical, collaborative and user-focused. 

I'm an active musician with a MMUS in composition from the Royal Conservatoire in Scotland. When not designing, I’m writing music for live performances, film and video games.

I also run a YouTube channel called Tantacrul, where I discuss various topics related to music and design. Based on the growing popularity of this channel, I occasionally get invited to speak at conferences in various places around the world.
