DOWNLOAD MY RÉSUMÉ

I work both entrenched in multi-disciplinary teams and in independent UX advisory roles. For clients who know what they need, I can step in at any stage of the user-centered design process. For those who don’t, I can help establish the most immpactful approach to a project, pulling from a range of methodologies:

CREATION

  • Information architecture
  • Wireframing and page design
  • Prototyping (paper and screen)
  • Feature release prioritization
  • Testing and iteration

I believe it’s important to empathize with the behaviors, desires, needs, and problems of both users and clients. I believe the why is more important than the what. I believe every meeting should have a purpose, deliverables can be beautiful, and thinking should be polished, forward-thinking, and thought-through.

I’m currently based in New York, but am available for work here, LA, London, Bangkok, Singapore, in the cloud… try me.
