User Experience DesignerArchitect (UX). I love creative problem solving and taking on new challenges. I aim to design and develop solutions that consider the optimization and balance between functionality, aesthetics and of course user experience with a variety of technologies, mediums, devices and platforms. Discovering the best ways to seamlessly connect humans (and possibly other creatures) with technology and ensure the interaction relationship contains a highly valued experience. I am continually expanding my experience in programming with software technologies such as HTMLCSSjavascript to enhance my design skills to better align with development practices. In addition to design and development, a key aspect that I also participate and integrate with is user research. Active with designing for the mobile landscape, along with venturing into other technologies (multi-touch, motion, voice), hardware and platforms via forward thinking devices such as Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (iOS), Android phones and tablets, along with Windows Mobile, Surface, Smart TV and gaming consoles. I pursue experiencing and understanding the digital ecosystem from software to hardware, services including social networks and lifestyle (holistically and independently). All of these factors play major roles in the experience of usability and finding ways to make the connection seamless between user and technology.
