My Story

I’ve been designing and building web sites and enterprise solutions as a consultant and a corporate professional for over 20 years.   I have experience working in corporate, advertising agency, as well as startups.  Eventually, I transitioned from the successful career in software development to become a User Experience Designer.

I’ve played many different roles in the design spectrum, including the role of a creative technical manager,  web designer consultant, a UX Team of One, and an Interactive Designer.  I like the challenge to make things more simple for end users .

I further studied UX Design (General Assembly) and Graphic Design principals, and continue to attend many workshops & meetups.   I’m always thinking of better user experiences in the things I see every day.   Mentoring others, whether it’s co-workers or clients, is also enjoyable to me.

In my personal time, I enjoy quite a bit of reading, traveling (hiking/kayaking/sailing), pencil drawing, digital art, and have spent much of my life being a songwriter, performer, and music producer.
