My name is Michael and I am a UX designer living in the San Francisco Bay Area with 9 years experience. I am a unicorn (That means I can draw & code).
"I love it when a plan comes together"
- Hannibal Smith
I think strategically to define and champion solutions that improve products and processes across the team and company.
I pioneer end-to-end ownership, driving creative projects from inception, through development, implementation, QA, launch, and ongoing support.
"Do or do not; there is no try"
- You know who said that...
I create cutting-edge designs, from concept to execution, across multiple platforms and form factors: web, desktop applications, and mobile devices using modern heuristics and design practices.
I champion and implement user-centered design methodologies across web and mobile platforms.
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
- Helen Keller
I build close relationships with program managers, engineers, user researchers, content strategists, and quality assurance analysts to maintain strong project and team alignment.
I seek input, requirements and iterative feedback from stakeholders across the company to help define creative design solutions, and present these back to the team and organization.
Focusing on user-centered principles.
Engaging and enlightening.
Mobile first, native or responsive.
Form meets function.
