What I’m Currently Doing & Past Experience
Currently, I am working for an AV control systems programing firm in Capital Hill. In addition to providing User Experience Design and business consulting services to several area firms, companies, and clients. I have 14 years under my belt in the design industry and have held various roles in my craft. In my past roles with Garrigan Lyman Group, Decisive Data, Arris Group and Microsoft, I have worked as a senior level User Experience Designer as the primary liaison between UX and engineering, supporting both in-house and offshore development teams.
Education and Expertise
My passion is to create user-centric designs that are aesthetically pleasing, natural in flow and easy to use. I believe in the refining power of simplicity and elegance through the fusion of logic and creative inspiration. I embrace the “human factor” in design and create experiences that tell stories which are clean, simple to use, and easy to navigate. I lead projects, advocate for the user and improve experiences.
