I AM A
In a time when we have content banging down our doors, marching through our phones, and printed on nearly every surface it’s easy for a user to become numb to the siege for their attention. I look at this environment as the perfect place to create engaging, meaningful, enjoyable stories tailored to entice specific personas.
At work, I drive UI requirements from concept to release. I research the competition, interview users, define features, user flows, and error conditions while ensuring a narrative weaves through all of this.
I think in images and build in code.
I am a visual thinker and I love visual design. I have worked as a freelance photographer, videographer and designer, all for the end goal of telling a story without using any words. For 12 years I have documented, detailed, and advocated for my ideas through Photoshop, Omnigraffle, Visio, graphite, and ink.
I build in the beautiful languages of jQuery, HTML, PHP, and CSS on screens both large and small. I love being a part of a passionate team that strives to ship the best product possible. I’ve worked with small, excited focused start ups with big ideas to large Fortune 50 companies striving to solve problems that affect global audiences. I speak a fair bit of Spanish, and I’ve worked with teams from Bangalore to Buenos Aires. I have no trouble communicating my research findings, ideas and design goals over any distance.

When I'm not scribbling in a notebook or crashing away at a keyboard I'm off somewhere biting off more than I can chew on an empty part of a map. You can read about my misadventures here: www.2wheels2boots.com
