Born and raised in Oakland, California, I graduated the University of California at San Diego with a B.S. in Cognitive Science in 1993. I have been in Madison, Wisconsin since 2002 and am currently a User Experience Consultant and have found myself doing more and more work in the emerging Virtual Reality space.
With over 20 years of UX experience, I am very adept at all aspects of the UX process. I am especially fond of gathering data through Voice of Customer and creating requirements from my findings. I have exceptional prototyping skills and can work with everything from mechanical devices to computer interfaces. What really sets me apart is my innovative drive that pushes me to create something better. I am a technology hound and love to be on the cutting edge of what is new.
Outside of work, I am a volunteer fire fighter with the Fitchburg Fire Department and follow my passion of martial arts where I have earned several Black Belts and even hold two World Champion titles.
When it comes to work, I want to be involved in projects that I find challenging and working with people who are top in their fields.
