Key skill sets I've been developing

UI/UX User Centered Design

“What separates design from art is that design is meant to be… functional.”

About Me

It has been an interesting journey!

  • January 2006

    Foundations of Leadership

    Serving in the military taught me many things about myself and effective leadership. It has very little to do with just “being the boss.” Set an example of excellence, develop a successful engaged team, and invest in individual mentorship.

    Begining as a Designer

    Design has been my passion since the first "fundamentals of design" course I took seven years ago. Since then I have continued to pursue several paths including: interior design and architecture, graphic design, and web design.

    Developing Technical Skills

    I had used a lot of software, but learning html code felt like unlocking the secret language of the universe!
    …well, at least the internet. And now I was able to translate design work into useful products with interesting user interaction capabilities.

  • Ongoing

    User Centered Design

    I advocate for the usefulness aspect as a priority in a design, and speak tech and design, so can serve as a Rosetta Stone, of sorts, between the two for projects.
