About

I am currently employed as a UI / UX designer by CareWorks in Dublin, Ireland. Careworks produce software for the Social Services sector, in Ireland, the UK, and the USA.

As UI / UX designer I work with three separate products, CareDirector US, CareDirector UK, both built on a Dynamics CRM platform, and CareWorks’ mobile app, Integrate. I am responsible for the research, wireframing, accessibility, prototyping and design of all UIs, and related web portals.

I have over eleven years experience working in UI and UX design, before that I worked as a web designer.

Industrial Design in IT Carlow followed by a PgDip ( with distinction 😀 ) in UX design in IADT (Institute of Art Design and Technology) Dun Laoghaire. I’m starting a one-year research MSc, in IADT in October 2019.
