A little about me

  • 24+ years of digital creative experience as an individual contributor, team lead, and manager, as:
    • information architect (IA)
    • interaction designer (IxD)
    • user experience (UX) designer
    • usability and accessibility specialist
  • 5+ years as a software developer/engineer, working on desktop and embedded applications.
  • I continue to keep up my development skills where possible, because I enjoy it and I strongly believe in craftsmanship—part of which I define as we should be able to build what we design.
  • I enjoy and prefer designing and building complete solutions, working end-to-end on a project.
  • I adapt quickly to new challenges, domains, and opportunities. My education and experience required me to do so: picking up new tools and technologies while solving nuanced and difficult problems.
  • I've worked for small, medium, and large companies—local, national, and international—in a variety of domains:
    • embedded technology
    • telecommunications
    • agricultural technology
    • Linux/OS services
    • custom construction
    • consulting
