“The role of the designer is that of a good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests”
– Charles Eames
User Experience Design
Always striving to create the the most efficient and succinct path for the end user to fulfill their needs and expectations. I utilize design to tell a story and fill-in the gaps within the user experience.
User Interface Design
Over the course of my professional career, I have worked as a prolific designer for websites and applications. I always focus on pixel perfection, and put great emphasis on the form, color, typography, functionality and aesthetics
The ability to communicate information clearly and efficiently to users has been a skillset I have honed in the past few years. Working in big data has made it necessary for me to continuously push the envelope in this realm of design..
Although my primary focus today is designing for the web, there are many color, form and perspective principles that cross over to help me visually communicate and problem solve using typography, photography and illustration.
Responsive Web Design & Dev
With so many different devices, I ensure pages render well on a variety of screen sizes. I also factor in the adaptive design and viewer proximity as an extension for RWD. Content, design and performance are necessary across all devices to ensure usability and satisfaction.
Browser Testing & QA
Experienced and committed to testing the UI with high quality standards in mind with close attention to the user experience. I am well-versed in Browserstack and Applitools to ensure the application behaves across all the tested browsers. I put emphasis on the aesthetics so that margins are correctly aligned within the grid and closely resemble the mock-up while being pixel perfect.
Drawing and illustrating is one of my favorite pastimes. I have studied fine art and am an oil painter in my leisure time. I’ve been using Illustrator since college in 2001. Over the last decade I’ve designed dozens of logos. I get excited at the opportunity to create custom icons as a part of the user interface process. I’m a big fan and prolific user of SVGs.
My experience in software and website development has given me priceless opportunities to work directly with CEOs, CMOs, CTOs, and Directors of product. Partnering with top level executives and product managers has taught me so much about market value, interdisciplinary collaboration and translating the vision of others in my design.
