UX DESIGN

Because UX is a multi-dimensional design challenge, it's by far the most fascinating to me.

I’m a visual designer first, but bring many other sets of skills to the challenges of UX design, including a deep understanding of marketing and what motivates people, and a big-picture view of the user experience as the sum of every encounter the customer has with a brand. UX appeals to my need to organize content and engineer a seamless flow for the most natural experience. I have deep experience with research, organization/planning and art direction, along with 
expert-level skills in Adobe Creative Suite applications. I’m an adroit prototyper – I like Axure and JustInMind the best but I use Adobe Muse to build prototypes and sometimes final sites. I am both visual and technical in my thinking.
