I am a User Experience (UX) Architect & Interaction (IxD) Designer and Instructor focused on creating, user-centered design solutions, through the use of solid Information Architecture (IA), along with tried and proven design thinking principles that put the user first.
Work experience includes discovery, research, ideation, design and team leadership for complex websites; dynamic & interactive web applications; multi-screen & multi-channel design for desktop, tablet, mobile, television, and POS in eCommerce, health care, entertainment, etc. I began mentoring in 2014 and then in 2015 I began online instruction through UCLAx and have been teaching 1-2 classes, 4-quarters a year ever since.
Professional goals and interests include: advancing the UX craft and profession through both client and my own project work; consulting for new and existing startups; building and working with exceptionally talented, cross-disciplinary teams to tackle complex UX problems; and helping craft the next generation of designers through UX instruction and mentorship.
