As a seasoned interaction designer for nearly two decades, I truly believe in the power of research led, data driven insights. I believe software design itself is the proof that we are asking the right questions and through design thinking we are solving the best problems. I believe software is a product of culture, and that a high functioning design culture will organically produce high functioning software products. I support these beliefs through rigor and processes that generate systems, enabling designers and design researchers to do their best work within an organization.
On a personal level; I spend time working on my start up, consulting with other companies on software design strategy, or wrenching on and riding motorcycles around the country with my partner.
