Skills

User Driven Design

I conduct customer research, user interviews, surveys and usability tests to make sure I'm crafting the right solution for the right people.

Creative Leadership

Ongoing roundtables with stakeholders and engineers are always a part of my process. My role is to represent the user and find a harmonious solution.

Prototypes

Nobody gets it right on their first try. Working from low-fidelity sketches to high fidelity prototypes keep users and stakeholders involved in the developing vision.

Agile Methodology

Managing product scope, breaking the project into stories, and provided detailed documentation gives engineers a workable roadmap.

Testing and Learning

Iterative design means you are never finished. Gathering user feedback, studying analytics and conducting tests give good clues as to where to go next.

About Me

I began my career as a jr designer and front end developer. Over the past seven years I have gradually transistioned into UX design. Having worked mainly in startup environments I've learned to wear many hats. I pride myself on being able to communicate with people on all sides of the equation: product owners, engineers and users.

In my downtime, I like to create comics and games. My first graphic novel "I'm Crazy" won Peter Laird's Xeric Award in 2010. I'm currently releasing a new book and starting on a narrative based card game.
