About

 

I am a human centered designer who believes in thoughtfully and smartly melding user needs with client needs through a blend of research, synthesis and execution. 

 

Me

I am a smart and thoughtful leader, an articulate and curious researcher, an explorer of design, achiever of results and a dedicated designer who is focused on results, user understanding, ease of use and pushing boundaries of the unexplored. 

 

Creative process

 I use a combined methodology of user research, synthesis and evaluation to find solutions. Iterating, refining and bringing forward a product with real value and substance is the keys to my design process.  

ThE MISSION

I create ground breaking products and intelligent ecosystems that foster rich human interaction. I strive to change lives by using my design skills to make every day easier and create customer happiness, one interaction at a time.

 

Client Delight

User delight and client delight is synonymous with a great product. Through a process of feedback and rapid prototyping, clients get what they see and the result is fast, targeted and realized.

 

Services

 

I provide a wide range of skills that span disciplines. I love building a product from start to finish and have varied experiences including field research, mapping, diagramming and visual execution.

 
 

user research

UNDERSTAND THE PERSON USING THE PRODUCT. 
It seems so simple, right? A product is made for a purpose and by meeting and talking with users, truly understanding their problems, identifying unmet needs, and starting the process of brainstorming, I have helped many to more clearly define the product that can meet their needs.

End deliverables include video, photography, user and key stakeholder interviews, and opportunities and vision for the product. 

EXPERIENCE design

PROVIDING AN ACTIONABLE SERVICE  FOR THE USER. 
What are the behaviors and needs of the consumers we’re designing for? Working hand in hand with research, experience design builds the products, services and experiences to engage the customer and create value and loyalty to a product or brand.

End deliverables include opportunities and vision for the product, the customer journey or ecosystem maps. 


 

INTERACTION DESIGN

UNDERSTAND THE PERSON USING THE PRODUCT. 
Study and interact with the user to build an understanding of just what they might need in interacting with a product. IxD relies heavily on user research synthesis and evaluation to identify opportunities to illustrate a newly identified feature or product use.

End deliverables include wireframes, customer journey maps, ecosystem maps, information architecture, user personas and scenarios.

 

Visual Design

EXECUTION OF THE FINAL AESTHETIC PRODUCT
What are the behaviors and needs of the consumers we’re designing for? Working hand in hand with research, visual design builds the products, services and experiences to engage the customer and create value and loyalty to a product or brand.

End deliverables include final website, mobile, interaction screens, presentation resources or print materials.
