Christina in a few words

Hello, I'm Christina. I'm a UX designer who writes. From content design, to software development, to UX design - I've been writing for, building, and designing user-friendly products for over 7 years.

My fascination for how technology is designed and built has taken my career on a journey through different roles that play key parts in crafting user-friendly products. This experience gives me a broad view on the product life cycle and, alongside my love of words and deep curiosity for what makes people tick, is hugely beneficial to my work in UX writing and to my collaboration with colleagues across teams.

Proud to have been part of the design team that launched Sky Glass— the streaming TV from Sky—I use my passion for empathetic user experience design, and my dedication to the craft of simple and effective writing, to help create great products that keep users coming back.
