About Me

I've been a UX practitioner for 14 years. Currently, I fancy myself an Experience Strategist. I most enjoy thinking through people's goals (both implicit and explicit) and a system can best help them achieve their goals. I don't stop at the conceptual, though, I think it's equally important for to delve into the weeds so I can understand how my sometimes lofty goals work in the real world. As such, a lot of interaction design and have worked on content management systems, e-commerce, and web applications.

I've been working with Drupal for over a year at Bluespark where I am their UX Director. I also co-founded the Interaction Design Association.

There's quite a few areas in Drupal where I'd like to see some improvements -- some little and some pretty big. Rather than keep complaining about them over and over, I thought I would actually get busy and start contributing.

Clients have included: Scripps Interactive, Princeton University Art Museum, Sandusky Radio, Phonebooth Mobile, T-Mobile, Cingular, AT&T, BET, Motricity, Microsoft, Duke University, Fortunoff, La-Z-Boy, Council for Entrepreneurial Development, and Oxford University Press.
