I became a user experience designer before I knew what UX was. As an arts administrator for a small non-profit I was the guy who (happily) volunteered to take care of the technical demands, which meant learning along the way. This included photo editing, web design, illustrations, branding, social media, physical collateral, etc.

Currently I am a UX consultant at Neudesic, helping businesses delivery the best design solutions for their customers & clients and meeting their business goals.
