My Story...

Most people drew pictures when they were kids. I made my own boardgames.

No way. I love board games.

Fast Forward...

It’s now my job to design useful, engaging online experiences for clients.

A Unique View...

My background combines both sides of the business + creative equation. 

You Don't Say.

But enough about me.

I hope you enjoy the site. Please do feel free to look around. 

Get Started

Pleased to Meet You

I’ve always loved designing complex systems – which is what I do as an Information Architect and User Experience Consultant. I’ve worked on UX projects for Fortune 500 clients like Burger King and Bank of America, and have an M.S. from VCU’s Brandcenter.

Work and Ideas

UX people help clients design usable, workable interfaces across web, mobile and social platforms. A good UX consultant can help you with everything from researching your target audience, to defining a creative vision, to testing and implementing.

Media and Publications

I’m a regular contributor to Fit and Finish, the UX blog from ICF Interactive, where our team covers trends and events in UX, Information Architecture and Digital Strategy. In addition to work in front of and behind the camera, I enjoy writing on User Experience topics, and have published articles on UXBooth and others.

Speaking

It’s important to get the word out on User Experience. In addition to video blogging, I’ve presented at various events on topics from content strategy to advertising and UX to UX careers.


So what’s a “typical” project look like?

As a User Experience person, I’m often involved in multiple aspects of a digital effort, from early user research and ideation, to later stage development and testing. The percentage of time spent on any given task will vary by project and client, but here are some things I typically do and how often you’re likely to find me doing them.

Likelihood I’m Working Directly On…

  • Content Strategy 90%
  • Information Architecture 80%
  • User Research 60%
  • Taxonomy Design 40%
  • Usability Testing 50%
