A bit about me

I am an interactive product designer and front end developer living in San Francisco, California. I have genuine passion for design, I love a good challenge, and I live to create beautiful and useful things. I'm addicted to learning and teaching others what I've learned.

I have over 7 years of experience with interactive product design, A/B test design, front end development, user testing, creative experiments, successes, and failures.

My skills

From ideation to launch, I have a broad set of skills that I can apply to any project. I've always worked on projects where I had to fill multiple roles, and I enjoy being able to code the designs I create. I'm "officially" a user experience designer, however I can also play the role of front end developer, visual designer, facilitator, and creative director. Here are a few of my skill sets:

UX and Interaction Design
UX & Interaction Design

Layouts, storyboards, wireframes, user flows, patterns, intuitive interfaces, and consistency based on user research and feedback. I design for human beings.

Mobile and Tablet Design

Experiences tailored for the mobile environment. I have designed and launched iOS and Android applications. I also won the StartupBus competition for WalkIn in 2011.

Visual Design and Illustration

The shiny wrapper around the experience. While design is an invisible problem solver, effective use of style is essential. Take a look at my work below for examples.

I can hand-code HTML5, CSS3, and a good bit of JavaScript/jQuery quickly, cleanly, and in a way that is cross-browser compatable. I LOVE to code.
