Objective

Create great user experiences in every medium

I believe that the customer experience goes far beyond interfaces and touch points to a company or organization’s every interaction, from marketing, to sales, to social media, to customer service, to the product itself, to support, and even to end-of-life. However, in order to provide these experiences, a business needs to understand and define the problems the product or service is intended to solve. I look forward to helping your teams identify these challenges using UX and Human-Centered Design methodologies and workshops.
