/ senior UX pro / writer / team manager / process thinker
In college I studied both English and French literature and in the meantime sharpened my skills with code and web site development.
One of the games on which I was a formative developer is still up and running. With the logo I designed, even.
One of the sites I worked on has evolved quite a lot since I worked on it.
How it looked back then
(Yes it's broken on modern browsers)
After school, I went to work for companies in the industrial measurement and software development industries. At first, I worked through an agency. But shortly I started working for myself.
At Macromedia, I had the privilege of working on a product way ahead of its time - Sitespring.
At two Emerson companies - Rosemount and Micro Motion - I had the chance to learn publication, release management, and translation.
Determined to drive further into user experience, I sought out opportunities to build scaleable, data-driven web sites and devices.
My programming background made creating advanced prototypes in tools like Axure a natural fit.
I've developed not only a strong understanding of analytics but an ability to craft custom insights and implement code for tracking new activity.
