I consult for a range of businesses to design and develop, rewarding, human-centred, digital products and services. My role typically involves:
I have a clear understanding of technology and deep empathy for the needs of others.
I am passionate about well-designed experiences. I care about the small details and enjoy constantly acquiring new skills and knowledge.
I have a proactive, pragmatic and no-nonsense approach. I always strive to simplify, avoid jargon and clearly articulate my thoughts.
I’m at my best when working on challenging projects with talented teams. I like to innovate, have fun and enjoy telling a few jokes along the way.
I’m a perfectionist at heart, but have been around long enough to understand that to get things done in a fast-paced environment there is a balance to be had between perfectionism and pragmatism.

* Yep the list is alphabetically ordered, are you impressed with my level of OCD?
"Ben's input on the project was absolutely essential. He is a dream to work with: great attitude and a totally expert in his craft. He makes the UX design process attainable to client and team. Can't rate him enough. I'm looking forward to working back together."
“We first worked with Ben nearly 8 years ago when he designed our new company's very first website. It is a testament to the quality of service and creativity he offers that he is still a valuable business partner.”
"I can recommend him very highly. He is very conscientious and attentive to detail around design itself, but also has a bigger-picture view of what we were trying to achieve as a business. Great client communication skills, and also a good guy to have around on the team for long stints on client site."
I love to travel and experience new cultures, so much so that I married an animal-loving Brazilian and spent the past 10 years learning portuguese.
I'm an active person, whether that's going to the gym, pool or running. Here's a picture of my trainers to prove it!
I'm obsessed with surfing, stand-up paddling, open-water swimming, anything that keeps me in the water for as long as possible.
At last count I had about ten boards. Here's the Brazilian quiver.
No I don't mean I'm on social media (although I am - a bit). I'm talking about the real deal. Talking to people rocks!
Whether that's at the counter in the supermarket or boarding a plane to somewhere tropical, I love a bit of small talk!
Whether I'm cooking, working out, in the shower or at work, I've constantly got something on. I even dabble on the guitar now and again.
I love food, cooking and craft beer. I occasionally attempt to brew my own (with only the one explosion to date).
Street art, graffitti, call it what you want, I dig it. São Paulo has some of my favourite pieces.
