Successful designers are often called "T-shaped people", in that they have an area of deep capability (the vertical part of the T), mixed with the breadth of knowledge to understand and collaborate with all aspects of the product development process (the horizontal part). I've been fortunate to have had the kind of career that develops multiple verticals, and wide horizontals, including:

- Years of experience developing strategic design plans to impact large corporations and industries (most recently I developed much of the design architecture of Microsoft's Surface tablet)
- Created visual design languages for major brands
- Merged the design and use models of hardware and software
- Led design teams at large and small corporations, in Industrial and Interaction Design
- Collaborated closely with User Researchers & Ethnographers to discover user-derived insights that drive meaningful innovation
- Worked hand's on with engineering and manufacturing to get difficult projects to market successfully
- Consulted with the marketing teams of several companies, using design thinking to transform their brand positioning
- Founded and grew my own design consultancy
- Led design efforts in the U.S. and in Europe, and partnered with product development teams in Asia
- Worked for and with design consultancies as an employee and as a client
- Designed award-winning products for the sporting goods, medical device and consumer electronics industries
- Designed dozens of extremely successful products that have lead to dramatic sales and profitability growth
