I am a UX consultant with a focus on interaction design, UI prototyping, and usability research.
My process borrows heavily from traditional user-centered design methods, but is optimized for each situation and client.
I have over 10 years of hands-on experience designing and doing research for startups and Fortune 500 companies.
My portfolio includes mobile and web projects for companies such as Avvo, Facebook, Microsoft, MSN, National Geographic, Vulcan, Weyerhaeuser, and Zynga. Verticals served include e-commerce, education, entertainment, financial services, health care, professional services, science, social, software, and telecom.
Avvo helps attorneys market themselves and find the right clients. They hired me to improve the UX on their cloud-based suite, Avvo Ignite. I helped them fill their dev pipeline by designing new features and optimizing existing flows. The web app uses Bootstrap and is a study in making the complex simple.
Motif Investing is an online broker that lets investors buy groups of stocks based on ideas and trends. I helped them design and prototype a new iPhone app, Motif Explorer. The app is lightweight and employs swipe gestures in multiple contexts to make browsing intuitive and quick.
Richard Saul Wurman invented the field of information architecture back in the 1970s. My interview with him has been published in the book, "Follow For Now," edited by my friend and colleague, Roy Christopher.
