Florence Okoye is a UX (User Experience) and Service designer by day, intersectional transhumanist by dusk and otherwise occupied with getting up to speed with critical theory, user centred practice, neo-thomistic theology, web development and modelling complex systems. She has given talks on UX and design at a range of events and conferences from Mozfest to TEDxBrum.
She is a Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiast and amateur Hellenist, grade 1 violinist and mezzo-soprano mediocre. Currently she is busy enacting a childhood fantasy by practically living in a museum where she gets to put her passion for inclusive design, open access, science communication and all things tech to good use.
Her personal motto is that she will try anything twice on the basis that she may have screwed it up the first time. And yes, she deeply regrets not having come up with that one herself.
Her creative projects include a novel, Chizoba of the Black Hills, as well as a multimedia steampunk adventure titled The Very Devils. Between bouts of inspiration, there’s a continually growing collection of speculative fiction short stories and webcomics, just watch this space.
