I am a Product Designer with over 15 years of web application design experience. I’ve worked for small startups and fortune 500 companies in all types of dev environments.

Designing great products means identifying those unique moments of engagement between users, the products and the environment, as well as the thoughts and emotions these moments create. It means making these moments enjoyable, entertaining and enlightening. Above all else, it means understanding your users.
