About me
Hired by Google to help establish London-based Google Doodles team, designing and launching experiences reaching billions of users
In 2016 I was head-hunted by Google to help establish the London-based Google Doodles team where I created and launched numerous experiences, each one reaching more than a billion users with billions of engagements. From games to short interactive documentaries, I found fun and delightful ways to explain complex concepts, such as machine learning, to hundreds of millions of users in a way they can relate to and imagine the benefits it could bring to their daily lives.
Collaborated with high-profile partners across various industries
Throughout my tenure at Google, I had the pleasure of working closely with several high-profile partners across a range of industries, including hip-hop legends, famous authors, NASA, and even astronaut Mike Collins. These collaborations allowed me to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation, resulting in impactful and memorable experiences for our users.
Led efforts to bring delightful experiences to Google products and co-founded an innovation team driving AI product innovation
Aside from my work with the Google Doodles team, I also led efforts to bring delightful experiences to many Google products, including the Offline Game on Android, with more than 700 million monthly gameplays, and the Google Weather Frog experience on Google Smart Displays, which remains a favourite among users.
After my time on the Doodles team, I co-founded an innovation team at Google, advocating for and driving AI product innovation.
My work has been recognised and complimented by the Google founders, CEO, and several VP-level executives.

Beyond my work at Google, I am an active member of the animation and design industry, giving talks at conferences, schools, and mentoring and supporting a new generation of designers and artists all over the world.
