Nice to meet you, I'm Matthew. I have worked in the Creative Industry for over 12 years and I am presently a UX Designer at Backbase, a market leading Digital Banking Platform and global FinTech leader.
After studying Graphic Arts and Design, I began my career in Digital Publishing, moving into Direct Marketing and Television Advertising, before deciding to focus on UX and Product Development.
Recently, I spent 5 years in Singapore managing UX teams that delivered essential business solutions for a range of enterprises including AWS, OCBC and Oracle. I also had the opportunity to assist a number of successful startups and medium sized businesses with product innovation and Digital transformation programs.
I'm a travel enthusiast who enjoys film and photography and is driven by any opportunity to study the way we think and do. I’m passionate about innovation and exploring new ways to bring ideas to life through Design Thinking and Technology.
