What I do


User Experience/Interface Design

I specialize in conceptualizing, designing, and evaluating human-computer interfaces. This process is best executed by focusing early on in the design process on stakeholder requirements, designing the interface, performing empirical testing, and iteratively implementing design changes. Adherence to this user-centered design approach allows consistent rendering of easy-to-use interfaces and contributes to consistent stakeholder satisfaction.

On a more profound level, I feel that the reason I love user experience design is because it employs multi-faceted knowledge and skills in the areas of computer science, design, and psychology; all of which I have a deep-rooted passion for. By use of each of these three areas of expertise I am able to effectively communicate with users and design highly useful, user-friendly interfaces. In the end, effective and user-friendly products are what make people happy... and that's what I'm all about!
