Introduction

About me


UX Direction & Digital Product Design Management.

I draw on more than 10 years of experience in the User-centered design space, with clear communication and positive energy as my tenets.  Most recently I have served on the advisory board at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center and led workshops at Noble Desktop (NYC) on the principles of User-centered Design.  While often an “army-of-one”, I have also managed small design teams in both on-site and remote projects.  If all this sounds good, I look forward to speaking with you about YOUR next project.

My Expertise


Wire frames


There is more to UX than simple wire frames. It begins with the User. Their attitudes, behaviors, and goals will inform the design as much as the internal business requirements.

Visual design


Before ``UX`` was a buzzword, I was creating rich user-interfaces in Flash. Visual design has always been a part of my expression, and I continue to exercise that through Creative Direction (and often getting my own hands dirty).

User testing


Great design does not exist in a vacuum. Without external feedback the most ``perfect`` UI cannot be validated. I test early, and often. In the long run it saves time and money, and always makes for a better product.

Collaboration


Marketing, Product, Engineering/development - how do you get all these people to reach a consensus? And lets not forget the Client... the answer is early involvement. Conducting ``design sessions`` and utilizing tools like InVision can ensure that everyone has a voice in the design process.
