My best work is often behind screens, pixels and devices, and that's okay.

I spend my days dancing between user-centered design thinking and getting ideas out the door.

This website pulls aside the curtain to share my workflows and processes I've crafted with over a decade of client, team and project management.

Trinidad & Tobago book

 
Trinidad and tobago macmillan book alex smailes.png

Hardcover book

This captivating photographic narrative is structured along four major themes of the islands' existence: the colourful, hot, and heady annual celebration of the carnival; the people and their forging of new identities with which to meet present and future challenges.

This book is a great photographic representation of Trinidad and Tobago. It completely draws you in. Definitely a book I will keep forever.
