As a seasoned UX/UI designer with over 20 years experience working in creative lead and development support roles, my strong suit has been my ability to seamlessly “Plug-In”. Utilizing my versatile technical skill set has been my calling card. Whether it be leading “Think Tank” product UX ideaology sessions, to brain storming visual design concepts with other UX/ visual designers, creativity is not of short supply. Throughout my career, my passions have strattled the fence of UX “Conceptual Creation” and the UI “Visual Designer” side of HCI application & software development.
My technical experience includes: HCI studies, usability and multivariate data testing, developing (UX) persona and scenerios’, storyboard creation, (UX) wireframes, sketches, lowfi mockups, Heuristic Analysis, Skeuomorphic graphic design concepts and most recently NUI (natural user interface) “Flat” visual design prototyping for Android and iOS mobile/tablet devices. While I am very familiar with most all industry standard programs within Adobe’s Creative Suite, my standout experience as a master level Adobe Photoshop artist allows me able to develop high fidelity mock-ups which I then translate into pixel perfect HTML5 prototypes from within Adobe MUSE, Codiqa and Tumult HYPE. This can be seen most recently, while developing an interactive Mall Kiosk tablet APP prototype, featuring my very own VIDEOCAST interactive webTV technology.
As for my people skills, I have spent many years successfully leading and mentoring small to medium sized development teams. Working collaboratively with executive management, product managers, UX/UI designers, coders, creative directors, marketing departments, sales channel directors, graphic artists, video production staff and even direct interaction with B2B client relations. At times being called upon to present polished presentations or champion ideas when a more technical perspective was needed.
It is my belief that the combination of my creative passion, meticulous work ethic, leadership qualities and my innate ability to think “Out of the Box”, will allow me to continually grow, inspire and bring a fresh user experience approach to your product development initiatives. For these reasons I look forward to an in person conversation with your company to further discuss how we may achieve a win/win Scenerio utilizing the above outlined Persona...
