I am a UX Zealot that is constantly evangelizing the principles and ideals of user experience design, putting passion and creativity into everything I do. My goal is to make things that delight and give people something that is useful.
I believe that true, higher order UX design has the power to influence lives and behaviors in major ways. UX is about the design of “system” and models that people move through. It’s more than just product or interface design to me. There’s a deeper meaning of bringing humanity to technology and bridging the gap between the human who build, and the human who uses. Human to human interaction.
My purpose is to solve problems, delight, empower, amuse, and connect people through technology. What really interests me is creating more than just a product or interaction, but a whole journey. Telling tales of how people move through what we do.
I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology. It’s part of the core source of knowledge for me, being two of the major aspects of what takes UX from the most base level of being perceived as UI, to the higher level scope of what is really important about experience design: empathizing and connecting with the user and the problem you are trying to solve.
