DESIGN PRINCIPALS
STRATAGY | DESIGN | IMPLEMENTATION

I specialize in UX and UI design, from strategy to product release, for software applications, web, and mobile. I design from the position that people don’t want to learn software, they want to use it. I strive to create simple – obvious interfaces that are expansive, beautiful and direct.


Process: The user’s experience is analyzed to create a customized experience based on the user’s profile and product goals. Concepts and work-flows are based on human based design models customized for the user and demographic. Through rapid prototypes and strategic design solutions, I create innovative and engaging user experiences. The outcome is a customized interface that appeals to the target audience while maintaining brand identity.
