Taking control of my own path by going freelance.

Over the last few months, I have taken a pause, a mini-sabbatical if you like. It's been a chance to spend time recharging and not having to be anywhere or be anyone other than Dad, Husband or Son. This time has provided me with space to reflect on my past career and consider how I want to spend my time moving forward and where I can offer the most value to others.

I get excited by potential, messy ideas that require exploring and defining. I get tremendous satisfaction from helping others shape their ideas into possible products and services that make the world better and the things in it easier to use. I am comfortable with ambiguity and enjoy exploring the unknown to help others make sense of vague ideas, complex products and intertwined services.

With this in mind, I’ve decided to freelance as an Experience Design Consultant.

My goal is to help teams create and work towards possible futures by developing experience strategies and product visions that guide them through uncertainty and change.

And to start things off, I will be working with the fantastic team at Unthinkable Digital, which I’m very excited about.

Maybe you can help me with my new venture

If you need a freelance Experience Design Consultant with 20 years of experience, would like to talk through any ideas or have any advice for me, I’d love to meet you for a coffee, virtual or physical.

It may not be the best time to go freelance, given the recent rather bumpy road we’ve been on, and I won’t lie, I am slightly scared, but this is precisely the time to be bold and try something new.

If you can help, please reach out. However small, however seemingly inconsequential, I appreciate and value your support.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. Please like, comment, and share to help spread the news.
