I am a UX practitioner, strategist, business owner, and former software developer with over 10 years of work experience. My consultancy focuses on helping businesses with digital products to create more value by making their products' experiences intuitive and easy to use. Its website (for its work in the visitor attractions industry) and my other portfolio: http://thrillandcreate.com.

I have significant experience doing this with large global companies, organizations in the attractions industry, nonprofits, new startups, and (through previous employers) the satellite and customer care industries. My work on UX design in the amusement industry has been published by companies in the USA and New Zealand. Note: Most of my recent work is under NDA, so it is not shown here.

I would love to talk with you about:
• Digital product design consulting for websites, apps, and software: how you can move past selling a list of features to an experience that makes your users happier and more productive and makes you more money.
• Improvements to your existing digital products to gain some of the benefits of a redesign without most of the cost.
• Improvements that help you reach the estimated 20% of your potential market who can't use most websites due to problems with accessibility.
• "Design thinking" approaches to ensure that you are building the right kind of digital product to solve the problem you want to solve.
• Strategies to help you prepare for an upcoming redesign, whether that is by your in-house staff, a local designer, or a design firm that specializes in your industry.
• Ways to make your website or app's users more likely to convert by giving them a more positive first impression of your brand.
• Guest blogging arrangements related to my services. Read Less

I'm a UX practitioner with a technical background, and I love UX projects where I can work closely with developers.

While my projects don't have to line up with my personal interests, I've been very blessed to have many that do. I've done UX consulting for organizations in the following industries:

* Visitor attractions & themed entertainment
* Travel & tourism
* Services consulting
* County governments
* Very large global companies

I would still love to add sports to that list - especially baseball.

My favorite projects tend to involve solving complex problems in user research and/or information architecture. Read Less
