«What do you do?»

I apply multidisciplinary design to product and process, wherever opportunity or introspection strikes. I mainly work with online projects, but have experience extending from conceptualisation through to marketing, on varied projects as diverse as interior design and web-service APIs.

I typically offer software/application architecture consulting and independent development team execution (resourcing, training, management, support), but may also consult on discrete facets such as UX and models.

I am predominantly interested in the following sectors: e-Commerce / Marketplaces, Publishing / Identity, Decoration / Interiors / Fashion, Hospitality / Intentional Communities / Real Estate, Distributed Computing / SaaS / PaaS.


Part-time: Possible in west Europe or Delhi, elsewhere dependent upon duration. Full-time: please contact.




These projects are shelved, or only partially implemented. I'm always experimenting with concepts and models, rarely getting around to building them into businesses. If you'd like to partner and do just that, I'm listening…
