When all is said and done, if the experience is simple, pleasant, and rewarding (like toast), users will keep coming back, telling their peers, and engaging in a meaningful way. While that makes me all warm and fuzzy, let’s face it, that’s also the experience you can monetize.
I design and lead the construction for complex projects with a broad scope and evolving objectives. I contribute to the overall product strategy through concept generation, prototyping and collaboration with the UX team and PM’s to promote feature integration.
I am responsible for all stages of design within a product area and think strategically while executing with great attention to detail. I have the ability to successfully collaborate with other designers, product managers, and engineers to develop innovative, user- friendly, best-of-breed products.
