I have years of experience planning, designing and developing digital products. I am a multi-disciplined, usability focused design thinker. Effective UX is best accomplished when a team of skilled collaborators come together to create elegant responses to various needs, all centered around the user. I have experience working with research to design interfaces, interactions, overall look & feel, IA, user flows, style guides, prototypes and more. I have conducted interviews, contextual observations, surveys and lead user testing. Additional skills include: creative team management, WordPress customization and development, branding, print design and production, and illustration.
