I’m a designer and developer from the UK.
Over the past few years, I’ve become increasingly interested in privacy and surveillance capitalism. I sometimes jot down thoughts about these topics on this site.
I work mainly through Scruples, a collaborative studio with the super talented Colin Lewis. Together, we build sites that have a positive impact on the world.
I’m interested in exploring how businesses can become less reliant on Facebook, Google and marketing techniques that fuel surveillance capitalism. Below Radar is a space for freelancers and business owners share their experiences of doing this.
Cyber Empathy is the creation of Andra Zaharia. It’s a podcast exploring cybersecurity, empathy in tech and other related topics. I was honoured to be asked to co-host this, so there will be more episodes arriving soon.
Unoffice Hours Webring
I’ve been running Unoffice Hours for a while now. The Unoffice Hours Webring is a way to connect the people running these sessions. If you run Unoffice Hours, it would be great to add you!
No To Spy Pixels
No To Spy Pixels is a campaign to raise awareness about the pixels embedded in our emails. The site helps people take action and raise the issue with companies and organisations.
I created Work Notes in January 2019. From a series of blog posts on my design site, this grew into a multi-faceted project.
The site now features a Pricing Guide, Freelance Guide and an international community of over 700 freelancers.
