||Welcome to my website! I designed this website to showcase my talent as a seasoned User Experience Architect. I have done this in some form or fashion for over 15 years, and just now am I “en vogue”. So read up and catch up and see examples of work dating back to the 90′s!I feel that I am a well rounded and creative Developer, Designer and User Experience Solution Architect. Having worked with so many driven corporate identities I know how to integrate well thought out designs that conform to their astringent guidelines while maintaining my creative touch. I sometimes get the privilege to be the instigator of dramatic change and think disruptively changing the trajectory of a companies’ online and mobile presence entirely. It’s jobs like those that keep me engaged and actively seeking to change the perceptions of companies about who their users are and how to engage them and make them loyal to their Brands.
I use this website to help people better understand what a User Interface Designer and Solution Architect does. As a UE/UI/UX Designer and Architect there is a whole arsenal of tools I have and use, and a lot of practices that I bridge in order to be effective in what I do. You will see that I have a lot of programming languages listed, and a lot of Content Management Applications. The reason for this is that in order to do my job I have had to become intimately familiar with these tools and languages. I have to know what comes “out of the box” for Content Management Applications so I can identify the pieces that need to be custom coded. In order to put the design into these applications and into to the code I have had to learn the languages they are written in, and where I need to put my code to make the application look as the client desires. I have been forced to become a developer in order to do what I love, which is build applications for a wide variety of business models. I interact with the “Business Owners” to gather the requirements and function as an Information Architect building Wire Frames, Workflows, User Persona(s) and and a QA Analyst building Test Cases, and do my very best to be the “User Advocate”. I try to make an application that is appealing and easily understood by the audience that is intended to use it, while keeping in mind all of the processes the “Business Owners” are trying to build into the application to make their jobs easier. I flourish in an environment where I am being challenged to learn a new business model and find ways to improve their business processes, and I love my job! It shows in my work and in the attitudes of the people I have worked with. I like to think of every project as a challenge and love working with a team to achieve success. Each project requires a different mix of talents and I am excited to go into a project and see which cap I will wear that day, and work positively with people in whatever way I can to get the job done.
I hope you enjoy looking at my site and seeing some of the projects I have had the privilege of working on with other talented and intelligent people, each project is a team effort and I have enjoyed working on every project and have had to grow in so many ways and I continue to learn so many things! I hope this website helps you understand what it is I do, and can gain some knowledge yourself. I try to teach as I learn, because that which is given freely is often returned tenfold. Feel free to peruse the site and comment, I look forward to your thoughts.
