About

I have honed my UX and design skills through working on cutting-edge products that required innovative solutions to complex problems. I specialize in seeing the big picture, problem-solving, user testing, defining features, prototyping, information architecture and wire-framing.


My career is multi-faceted and spans early stage, consumer-centric product lines including multimedia, financial services, 3D environment capture and gaming. I am an inventor on multiple design patents.
