As I approach nearly 20 years working as a UI/UX designer-developer, I feel extremely fortunate in that I truly enjoy what I do as much today as when I first started. I've worked in various industries and markets, met and worked with a lot of smart and talented people, and learned some cool stuff along the way.

Most recently my primary focus has been to help develop user experiences which depend on more than a pretty screen to look at. I've spent a lot of time ideating and conceptualizing via cross team collaboration, understanding business goals, leveraging best practices and proven design patterns, thoughtful workflows and UX research data and more to achieve this goal.

I am seeking a new opportunity where I can continue working with smart and creative people, in a focused but fun environment that supports talented professionals and great user experiences.
