About me

I am an experienced design and usability professional dedicated to helping companies develop excellent software products.

In my design practice I have developed an approach that balances team collaboration with focused concept refinement. This invariably leads to practical, yet elegant design solutions. I play a central role in consolidating diverse requirements and stakeholder inputs into coherent and polished user experiences.

Analog Challenge Accepted:

Fixing Design Friction

I gave a talk at UXCamp 2014 on the topic of added design friction.

When a product "goes digital" some obvious and singular digital-related benefit usually drives the decision to modernize. We often gain some friction along the way. Using personal calendars and prescription writing as examples, I illustrate the value of thinking beyond competitive analysis: to first observe, research, and draw inspiration from the analog predecessor, or from completely unrelated products.

I have some other talk topics in the pipeline.
