I provide understanding to create meaningful products and services through a collaborative process of research and design.
I work with companies to envision and create products or services that connect more meaningfully with people's lives. I work as an interaction designer, user experience designer, information architect and design anthropologist. I work on everything from websites, applications, products, wearables, environments, and services.
In addition to my design work, I co-founded the Midwest UX conference in 2010 as a way to strengthen our regional design community and create a place for distributed practioners to create connections at a human scale. I've been deeply involved with community development through the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) as a local leader in Columbus and now I currently serve as President of the global IxDA community.
I write and speak about the intersection of culture, design, and technology. I believe it is fundamental to both our design and business endeavors to be grounded in a combination of theory and practice.
