Interaction Design

As both an individual contributor and IxD lead, I’ve been designing sites across the spectrum – from mobile Web applications to pure content and marketing sites, across numerous vertical industries and areas of subject matter expertise.

Web and Application Technology

A solid understanding of Web technologies (HTML, CSS, JS, components, frameworks) makes me a better designer and leader. I understand what’s possible and how best to help my UI developers and engineers build great sites and applications.

Communication design

Whether I’m explaining ideas, sketching concept models, or laying out a complex Web application, my information design capabilities have always made for better communication.

Digital strategy

Design the right thing, then design the thing right. Good digital strategy help makes sure you’re designing the right thing, where the forces of user needs, business goals, and enabling technology are aligned.

LEADERSHIP

For more than 15 years, I’ve been driving great business and professional outcomes – for project teams, individuals, and organizations. My experience spans a range of contexts, from facilitating large collaborative workshops to leading product design efforts to one-on-one mentoring.

Workshop design and facilitation

Effective, collaborative work sessions that generate actionable outcomes require thoughtful design, careful planning and strong, confident facilitation.

Design Leadership

As a design leader, I’ve guided product and application teams, shaped the design discipline within organization, managed projects and positioned design for success

Mentorship

Professional guidance is most effective when it centers on people’s goals, their strengths, and a realistic assessment of their capabilities. I enjoy working one-on-one to help people benefit from my professional experiences.
