UX Resumé

Complex, enterprise-level UX project engagements make me smile. Moving the needle is my forte and I while I enjoy getting my hands dirty empathizing with user needs and producing design artifacts, I would also welcome opportunities that allow my management skills to be put to task. I would absolutely go bananas to work with augmented/virtual reality and/or voice-driven engagements.
