Formally trained in design and cross-disciplinary hermeneutics (the design of design) from years of study and practice in traditional architecture, I continue my professional growth in shaping the User Experience (UX) of digital interfaces and the Information Architecture (IA) of complex processes. With twenty years of design and execution in information technology, desktop publishing, and all aspects of Internet development—including accessibility, usability and mobility—I am passionate about shaping the UX of complex processes, like those in finance, healthcare, insurance, customer relationship management, and content management systems.
