I worked as a Design Leader for a global corporation in Asia, and created MDZ Design
, helping people turn great product ideas into market ready solutions. Alongside this, I contribute back to industry through public speaking
, being a design fellow at Coho,
an ambassador of Women In Innovation,
writing articles on Medium
and mentoring junior designers. I also recently wrote a book on Design for Business Owners.
Before, I gained international work experience in consulting, start-ups, and in-house in roles which championed the voice of the user, or helped consider ways to grow design teams or improve design cultures. During this decade I worked in teams on global & local projects
across industries such as, Consumer Electronics, Household Goods, Travel, Finance, Audio & Video, Packaging, Retail. With some consumer products brought in to the market. A career highlight is designing and launching the first combined physical & digital dedicated music device
, from scratch, at UK start-up Roxi
Now, my career interests revolve around design, innovation & product strategy. Creating broader solutions spanning across digital, physical, virtual, and/or service. Whether I work on, spaces, systems, or products, I believe that research, experimentation, ideation and real-world testing brings the best design results.
I'm currently based in Hong Kong
