UX and design for desktop and mobile apps

I help product and UX teams create experiences that are clear, efficient, and consistent.

I’m typically hired as a contract consultant, augmenting internal teams from concept through development.

More often than not, this means working with product teams on web and mobile apps to

  • Improve usability and optimize user flows

  • Make significant changes to UI and visual design systems

  • Design—or redesign—the complete user experience

  • Create new products

Common tasks and deliverables include

  • Task analysis and feature prioritization

  • User experience flow mapping and wireframing

  • User interface and visual design

  • Design specifications


Background

While my background is in traditional print and corporate identity, my focus has been interactive design since 1996. In that time, I’ve completed over 90 interactive projects for companies including Google, Wells Fargo, Hotwire, Innovacom (France Telecom), Accesso, Clarizen, and Cheskin.

Prior to opening the doors of my own studio in 2001, I was a managing director at Scient, leading the customer experience teams on some of the consultancy’s largest projects. Before Scient, I worked for a variety of design firms learning the trade, including USWeb/CKS, Design One, Landor, FCB, and Pentagram.
