As a User Centered Designer (UXD), I plan and document how to make the right information and features sets available to the right person in just the right way. I’ve designed and build many interactive Axure prototypes, applications, websites, and more that help users achieve success.
I have over 15 years of experience working with Internet technologies, designing websites, project management, and interactive marketing. I have ran my own development company for several years. I also have training related to Information Architecture, interaction design, user experience, and prototyping with Axure and Balsamiq.
I’ve spent much of my time designing interactive products, managing teams, and launching marketing systems. I have a proven track record of success. I have the experience and skills to get your interactive projects done – quickly, less costly, and more efficiently.
