About my work

I am a principal user experience consultant with User Vision.

I identify how products and services are performing, and where they can be improved to deliver the best experience. I am an agile certified project manager, and I have a track record in successfully integrating human-centred approaches in agile projects. I am also an accredited service designer, and my work always considers people’s wider experience across multiple touchpoints.

Through prior roles, I have developed significant experience in enabling people to pursue more human-centred approaches in the higher education sector, on web projects and in service delivery. I have also worked on digital and research projects for small businesses, in the third sector, in public affairs and government.

My work brings together my interest in web technologies with my background in social science. My degree is in economics and politics, and I have a particular interest in behavioural science. I enjoy incorporating this knowledge into my work to improve technology-focused services that need to be more human-centred.

About me

My pronouns are he/him.

I live with my wife and my young daughter.

In my spare time I cycle, run and walk to explore new areas. I enjoy watching motorsport, and listening to experimental and electronic music. I am interested in modernist design and brutalist architecture. I am a liberal.

I have written blogs since 2002. Archives up to 2012 are at doctorvee, vee8 and Stepreo. I also used to compile Scottish Roundup, a weekly digest of Scottish blogging.
