As a User Experience Designer I am driven to create intuitive, useful and engaging products and services. My main interests are design strategy and interaction deisgn. My long-term career goals include leading cross-discipline UX teams with a focous on design strategy. I enjoy collaborating with developers and product owners often. When I'm not solving design problems or coding you may catch me hiking, cycling, or having fun with my wife and my dog.
I love empathizing with a user base and building great user experiences. I constantly think about how people are percieving products and services, often asking: "How could I make this better?" That curiosity and drive combined with my love of technology allows me to create and build quaility products. I feel that good design makes the world a better place and I have always been driven to create that world.
Design is about making things better for people. Done right, you are able to deliver solutions users didnt know would enhance their experiences with your product/service.
Design is a competitve advantage that has objective measures. Design should help drive strategic business decisions.
You won't be right 100% of the time. Learn from your users: iterate and improve products quickly.
Design should include collaboration with all product stakeholders. Teamwork and collaboration build stronger products and make better expereinces for the user.
The three "P's" are what make a business thrive: "People, Process and Product"
