I live in the future. Creating new and unprecedented tools, lush with truly delightful user experiences is my lifeblood. Enhancing your customers' lives and easing their workload takes more than pretty colors on a screen, it takes both vision and restraint. My years of experience with real business run by real people, coupled with evolving skills, has given me that insight, giving me vision to bring a smile to a customer's face when that tool really works for them, instead of the other way around.
I pride myself on strong interaction design skills and unique insight, with a bend toward illustration, and creating a truly pleasurable experience for each user. Balancing the best qualities of minimalism and skeumorphism in design, in order to derive the best possible solutions. Performed some experimental study in mobile game design & development, its tools and techniques, analysis of the medium's UX traditions and trappings, and its usefulness as a storytelling platform, I contrast these facets against the ever-evolving UX / UI design patterns seen in today's app-centric world.
Beyond apps, I'm a thriving DIY entrepreneur. Built on a decade long online business selling out of print books, I have developed a prototype app targeted at solving some of the most painful points encountered by Amazon based sellers. Forging a business with the Amazon powered retail field, coupled with my unique UX experience, has crafted an unparalleled vision, causing launch of a development project to evolve my prototype into its next logical form, a full featured, full powered web application.
While having a strong background in print design, production, and illustration, due to my own fascination with modern software technology, I have become very fluent in programmer lingo and the development process. This intimate knowledge facilitates communication between myself and development teams. Read Less
