UX | UI | Print | Brand | Illustration

A UX/UI/Graphic Designer. My experience includes 25+ years in print design, digital design, logo design, brand development/management, project management, instructing and demonstrating software and hardware interfaces for the graphic arts industry. As a creative kid who loved math, I was a bit of an anomaly…possessing a wild imagination with a strong appreciation for logic and process. Today I enjoy my versatility and it affords me the ability to generate and present solutions creatively and systematically.

I have been incorporating research, content strategy, ideation, iteration and collaboration in my print and web design projects throughout my career. This naturally lead to my focus in User Experience and User Interface Design. Continually learning from conducting UX research and applying design methodologies for new and existing client projects I have been able to improve the web experience for their users and ultimately achieve and exceed business goals. My wish is to practice UX disciplines, threading discoveries from research through ideation, sketching/wireframing/prototyping, and visual design for web and print applications alike. It is my wish to collaborate with a team in a user-centered driven environment. I look forward to working with you!
