Concept and Strategy
User Interface Design
Mobile & Responsive
I design from the position that people don’t want to learn software, they want to use it. I strive to create simple – obvious interface that can still be expansive, but are always beautiful and direct.
I have implemented strategies, designed services and products that helped move the company forward. I I developed UX solutions that boosted customer subscriptions and increased sales.
I am innately creative and love to move products forward. I have designed web sites and software for large and small companies. At Microsoft, I worked on a complete site redesign for Windowsmedia that moved it in a new direction to beat the competition. When I worked in games at Microsoft, I created an innovative texture mapping technique that greatly enhanced the realism of the product. I also came up with the first Microsoft Blimp that flew through the game.
I am an advocate for the customer and the user. Recently I worked on an iPhone shopping App that was designed specifically to be used one handed so the user could push the cart while using the App.
I have diverse experience. I worked for an Adobe start up, Picture IQ and designed photo editing software for web, game console and mobile devises. I recently completed a site redesign for a data service provider, Knowledge Mosaic, a Meditation App for iPhone, a mobile web App for Walmart and worked on an iPad App for MyHabit at Amazon.
