I believe in sharing work early in the design process. I endorse the Lean UX methodology. I'm a perfectionist, but maintain a mindful awareness that "Done is better than perfect." Central to working iteratively is knowing when to sacrifice quality for speed, but also how to be resourceful at balancing the two.
Having practical knowledge of the entire process allows me to design experiences that feel natural and can actually be built. I'm able to lead others, work without an ego, and generate my own ideas. Humble when asked to flesh out someone else's.
I've done work for Ford, Atomized, P&G, Gap, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, MetroPCS, Valvoline, North American Properties, Coca-Cola, Wrigley, Sunrun, Walmart, Publix, Cadillac Jack, Equifax, IHG.
- The experience of hiring programmers to build Local Menus is the catalyst that originally encouraged me to learn how to code.
- I was on a segment of reality tv a long time ago. It's silly, don't watch it.
- I published some observations about UX & game design at Game of Thumbs. It's overall highly functional in its implementation. It's always fun to stretch the boundaries of a WordPress-driven UI. It took a lot of time to write new critiques, so I was in the process of streamlining it when Apple announced that it would be sunsetting affiliate payments.
