Hey, I'm Dan—Product Designer, building successful products & happy teams.
For the past 10 years I've been involved in all sorts of projects, both big and small. I've helped start-ups figure out what they should be building and transform their vision into a real product. I've also worked with large organisations to take their product further by solving hard problems that affect key metrics.

My experience as a leader taught me how to build successful teams: from defining a healthy hiring process, to managing internal resources, to supporting and growing happy design organisations.

I'm currently contracting with clients like Instrumentl (YCombinator '16), Get Your Guide, Burberry, Obby, and others. Previously I led design at Farfetch, Just Eat & some smaller start-ups.
