Strategy, UXRead case study
(And some stealth startups I’m not allowed to talk about)
I’ve been a UX Designer for over 11 years. Before that, I started my career as a developer until I realized the quality of my code doesn’t matter if people hate using the thing I made. I went looking for what made one app enjoyable and others frustrating. I quickly stumbled into the world of user experience design and I was hooked. Since then I’ve worked on dozens of projects with Fortune 500 companies, startups, mom and pop shops, and many others.
In late 2013, I made the jump to freelancing and never looked back. I’ve had the privilege to work with some amazing companies while having the flexibility to go on some epic adventures.
I love what I do and I’ll talk about design to anyone that listens so I decided to use that passion to help others become better designers. I created Design Smarts to teach others how to design badass software. It’s the kind of resource I wish I had when I started my career.
I created Design Smarts to teach UX/UI Design skills to designers. I write blog posts, post book reviews, and create resources to help designers be better at their craft.
