Hi. I'm Mark

a dedicated creative professional that thrives on solving meaningful
problems with a diverse team. I’m a design leader whose approach
combines the creativity and velocity of film production with the rigour
of data informed, user-centric design.

At HERE, I elevated UX across the product portfolio and led a team
dedicated to innovation and prototyping projects which were an
integral part of customer engagement and our presence at shows like
CES and the Paris Motor Show(Mondial).

As part of the platform product management team I spearheaded an
initiative to enable data sharing between governments and car
manufacturers. Working across three business units and two continents
to create a new program and lead it successfully through product
portfolio review by senior leadership. (C-Level)

I excel at aligning and managing resources, goals and expectations.
I put personal relationships over process and tools, and achieve success
by the integration of design, engineering and business viewpoints.
