User experience designer and architect

Do your solutions have world-class user experiences? Designing the user experience requires the ability to influence an organization to balance utility, usability and aesthetics of products and services. I have been designing for over 18 years and understand the challenges to creating a world-class user experience. I am a collaborator, a person who brings eclectic groups of people together to solve problems and design products. I enjoy working with large, complicated applications that require the synthesis of vast amounts of information into a clear vision as well as understanding the limits of technology, time and resources to come up with exceptional design solutions. I am a natural leader who leads through enthusiasm, knowledge, vision, and respect. Additionally, I have strong interests in the challenges to innovation and the idea of design as part of business strategy.
