Product Design & UX Design Strategy
Welcome to my site. I'm a UX designer with more than a decade of experience researching and designing digital products. My passion is synthesizing user needs and translating them into design concepts. In my career I have focused on the "upfront" part of design, often referring to myself as a "functional UX Designer."
My approach: synthesize the problem from the users' perspective, rapidly prototype possible solutions in the time allotted. Test, iterate, and find a solution that fits business strategy and is technically feasible.
