I work via Dogwood Digital, mostly analysing and organising digital content.  Until August 2012 I worked for the Guardian, as a ‘UX and Information Architect’. I’ve also spent a couple of years at the RNIB, trying to figure out SharePoint and how to make information findable, all in an accessible way. Before that I was the Information Architecture Team Leader in the BBC’s Future Media & Technology department, which is a lot of words and quite reasonably attracted the scorn of Private Eye.

On IA topics, I tend to write about searchanalytics, e-commerce, accessibility, categorisation, UCD and words.

Some popular posts:

I live in Tottenham in London with my husband, cat, rabbits and chickens. This seems to surprise people who know Tottenham. My husband does coppicing so I’m trying to work out how to be “IA in the woods”.  Lots of my interests fit into a bigger theme of ‘the good life in the digital age’.

I started ia play as a place for my musings on playful approaches to information architecture hence the name.  I feel pretty strongly that all this work business should be more fun. I’m sure that’d help us do it better.
