"My expertise in UX design comes from 19 years of deep and broad experience in interactive media. I am a storyteller who can effectively create a new product or service from an existing user/business challenge, highly capable of working in the realm of unknown opportunity and asking the tough questions while assuring stakeholders. Most importantly, I can back up my enthusiasm with solid deliverables, well-researched and well-written strategic documentation, hard analytics numbers and convincing presentation leadership.
My great skill is the ability to work collaboratively across business, technical, visual, and marketing needs to ensure that user experience doesn’t degrade because of politics, budgets, and strong personalities. I look at projects not only from a design perspective, but also on project, business, and technical levels. My top priority is to mitigate risk and assure the highest quality user experience.
And when it comes down to show time, I am very comfortable in making presentations in challenging stakeholder meetings. I have a proven ability to sell the ideas by aligning strategy, users, and goals with a best-in-breed solution. I offer the passionate UX leadership and advocacy that gets everyone on the team rowing in the same direction."
