Product/UX Designer

I'm a professional UX consultant with over 20 years of experience. I know that behind every successful product is a great user experience. UX design focuses on having a deep understanding of users, what they need, what they value, their abilities, and their limitations. UX design also takes into account the business goals and objectives of the company. It's a delicate balancing act.

  • Conduct User Reseach
  • Create Intuitive Design
  • Write UX Copy
  • Validate and Test with Users
  • Sell and Present Designs to the Business
  • Advocate for the User

My main focus is Enterprise User Experience (Enterprise UX). I design software that helps enterprise employees do their jobs more happily and effectively.

My Works

Red CLASSIFIED stamp

Sorry, can't display my works online. You know how it is.

I'm happy to discuss my works with you in a personal interview. I'll even provide the backstory and processes used. And really, I wouldn't be a very good UX peep if I just showed you some screen shots or shared a link to a web site/app. Remember, there's a lot of work that goes into the final product and I know you care just as much about that work!

Below are a few case studies. Check 'em out, then let's chat!
