User Xperience Specialist
Interactive Tech Consultant
UX and the Future of Business
I believe that User eXperience is the driving innovation leader for enterprise caliber companies looking to improve their products and services. Profit Margins have been cut, Production has been optimized, and Marketing has become more targeted… so how do we grow adoption and increase retention of our customer base? One answer businesses are discovering, is to implement Design Thinking in order to improve their customer's User eXperience.
UX is the next great innovator in meeting and exceeding our customer’s expectations, desires, and needs. We do this by employing Design Thinking methodologies to understand our customers and their relationship with our products/services. In this way, we can design for an experience that shows "we get them". Via user testing, research and design we deliver a solution that it is intuitive to use, aesthetically engaging, and immediately valuable.
Our customers have many options, and with all due respect to the film Field of Dreams: If you build it, it does not mean they will come. Implementations based on User-Centered-Design are the difference between "having" to use your products/services, and "wanting" to use them. This is where I direct my efforts because the User eXperience is, and will continue to be, a meaningful differentiator for businesses moving into the future.
Professional experience in directing Enterprise UX for Web Applications/Sites, Project/Team Management, and Product/Service Development. Unique ability to use my design training, technical aptitude, and leadership experience to deliver effective solutions that drive adoption and help build your brand.

“While often misunderstood, User Testing is integral to the UX process (User Testing, Research, Design... repeat). Regardless of it being functional, if the user can’t easily use it – it’s not working.”
“Fundamental to design, Research plays a crucial role in the development of an effective interactive experience. You can’t expect to hit the mark, if you don’t know where to aim your efforts.”
“Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, a branded User–Centered–Design allows your audience to connect with your products/services within an intuitive, engaging, and informative environment.”
