As a designer for over twenty years, I have worked on both sides of the Atlantic, bringing user-centered design philosophies to products, experiences, interactions, and graphics for companies large and small.
More than just pixel-pushing, my personal brand of design is user-focused, business-aligned, engineering-aware, and relentless in the pursuit of building better things now and in the future. 
My strengths are in aligning product, design, and engineering, with a strategy that promotes a richer user experience from day one, and the roadmap to continually learn, iterate, and improve for the future.
