I create interactive products used by people. From large-scale applications and mobile operating systems to small interactive widgets, I've worked as an advocate for user-centered design in many capacities: for small companies and startups, as a consultant in my own design studio and as an employee at large corporations. As a seasoned product designer and design collaborator, I am on the Board of Advisors at Broadside Digital and I have volunteered as a mentor at multiple Seattle Startup Weekends.
I specialize in responsive interaction design for multiple platforms. I'm an expert interaction designer, information architect and user advocate. I have a strong design sense and capabilities in both visual and interaction design methodologies. I can envision a concept, product or a feature idea by making it as real as possible as quickly as possible.
First, I seek and listen to gather requirements, understand goals, define assumptions and solve known issues before considering a systematic solution. My process always involves creating wireframes that show the optimal task flow and ultimately the end-to-end experience for products to be used by people. These wireframe storyboards explain a product's usage model - a digital wayfinding system to be learned by repetitive usage - including written scenarios that define the individual features and overall functionality, and the visual look and feel for its target customers.
Most of the examples shown here in my work portfolio are real products in use by real people; one is just a concept. I designed and shipped two complete iPhone apps that are shown here, including a FitBit Finder and an app for printing and framing photos. At Tableau Software, I worked on a mobile application for direct manipulation of data via touch on the iPad.
