Hi! I’m a UX designer, researcher, and occasional design manager. As a collaborative craftsman,* my specialties are highly interactive prototyping, evaluative usability testing, and designing for accessibility and inclusiveness. As a manager, my strengths are in mentoring, teaching, building teams that level up, and ensuring my reports are strategic partners and are seen as knowledgeable experts by the organization.
I follow a rigorous code of ethics. In short, I believe that designers are public servants, regardless of who employs them, and one of their primary functions is to minimize harm—existing harm as well as any potential new harm. I believe that no tech is neutral, and that designers are force multipliers for the organizations they work for.
* I used to say “individual contributor” before I learned it was a union-busting term.
Note to recruiters
In accordance with the ethical code described above, I keep a handy list of industries I’m interested in and not interested in. Please feel free to contact me if you have something that passes this filter:
