...but there's little consideration about how it all fits together outside of a static comp. You tap a button and the form just ...appears? You swipe to delete an item and it just vanishes? That’s super weird and un-natural. Nearly nothing in the real world does anything as jarringly as just swapping states... #ux #ui #interactiondesign

For the past 16 years I have been working as a User Experience (UX) Designer and User Interface (UI) Designer with a broad portfolio of digital products, spanning web, mobile and interactive experiences. I pride myself in proposing solutions that balance user needs with business goals and technical capabilities.
I believe design should not be considered as an after-thought. The combination of design, technology and business is critical to success because it enables product iteration to happen faster and at a higher resolution. Being fluent in the full design stack, from user research and interaction design to information architecture and communication design means I can take you from prototype to a full featured app.
I also possess a wealth of experience in cooking up start up ventures of my own.
