Forward Thinking. Design Focused. I combine creative and usability viewpoints to create world-class products with great user experience. With over 10 years of industry experience, I bring passion and knowledge that I am happy to share.

Please note all our lecturers work as a team, and are booked based on their independent schedules. As such, course allocations are subject to change.

I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at Friends of Design was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to Friends of Design for a different course.
