I was an educator, classroom teacher, and social scientist for ten years before I stumbled in surprise onto the fields of experience design and user research.

From these fields, I bring to UX ten years' experience applying the same pattern of thinking and a proven ability to:

  • identify and meet the differentiated needs of users,
  • adopt a data-driven approach,
  • challenge unsupported assumptions about users,
  • develop strong relationships with stakeholders, and
  • thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic team environment.

As an educator at my core, I am passionate about the mission-driven approach necessary to build a UX culture: evangelism of UX research and continuous engagement with diverse stakeholders.

My wife and I live happily here in the heart of Gainesville with our young son.
