Who I am

Hi, I'm Richard. I work at leading technology companies in senior product roles, helping teams of product managers, engineers and designers to create world class applications.

Morning Daily

Morning Daily is a new web app I've created, which sends you a personalised daily update at 7am every morning.

Never miss a story with a custom news feed from the world's leading sources, get your latest stock prices, the local weather and your own calendar appointments - all before you roll out of bed..


.net Magazine

In the April 2013 issue of .net magazine I chatted to indie game developers about how easy it now is for web professionals to create an iOS and Android game. I also spoke to the leading mobile SDKs Corona, GameSalad, and Gideros.

In a feature I wrote for the November 2012 issue of .net magazine I argue that a healthy curiosity in human nature helps us create delightful sites and apps.


I’m a contributor to Offscreen magazine.

In issue #5 I interviewed Jon Hicks about being a colourblind designer, creating globally recognised icons, and how cycling changed his life.

In issue #4 I interviewed Jeremy Keith about playing the bouzouki, and why his job as Technical Director involves a lot of goofing off on the Internet!

I also put together a handy international conference guide, so you’ll know where to spend your time (and money!) in 2013.

In issue #3 I interviewed Chris Coyier from CSS Tricks on everything from working at Wufoo to the zombie apocalypse!

In issue #2 I interviewed the wonderful Ged Maheux from IconFactory.
