I'm Alex, a design lead working with strategy, innovation and hands-on product design.

I draw on my experience as a designer, developer, researcher and facilitator to help teams pull together, understand problems, uncover insights and deliver viable and elegant solutions.

I’m passionate about human-centred, evidence-led design, and about ideas that drive positive change. I live in Amsterdam.
