“Michael has amazing ability, both as a front-end developer and user experience designer.

 The product was unquestionably better for this collaborative approach and for him always challenging the team to better meet user needs.

I whole-heartedly recommend him to any organisation that values user-centred and results driven design.”

I worked with TOM SIMCOX at DWP, where we worked on the Benefit Fraud project.
