Within my two decades of experience in UX and graphic design I have worked with some of North America’s most recognized brands. I have also helped launch and support several tech startups. My process involves working closely with key stakeholders engineers and users to guide products from conception to launch. I employ an agile build / measure / learn methodology to improve a product’s effectiveness with every iteration.

What is your main area of expertise?
Product (Software) Design— including Research, User Experience, User Interface Design, and Product Road mapping.
I’ve been a designer for 20 years. Though I started in the advertising department of a tabloid newspaper and spent nearly five years in a print design and branding agency, I’ve spent most of my career as an interactive designer. I have had the pleasure of working with some of North America’s most recognized brands, including Zynga, Del Monte, Expedia, and North West Co. As a Product Designer I have helped launch and support several start-ups including Havana Controls, Pricerazzi, Kindoma, and Permission Click.
I worked on a large multidisciplinary outdoor park project with Architects, Electrical Engineers, Steel Workers, and Developers that involved the conceptualization of a unique outdoor interactive space.

Online’s interview process, while lengthy, provided me with an ever increasing sense of the positive work environment they’ve managed to create. I met so many 10+ year Online employees (rare these days) that I had to find out for myself what made this place so special.
