I’m a UX designer, developer, and creative tinkerer with over 10 years of experience in the interactive field. I’m currently a UX designer and prototyper at Hulu. I think great design comes from asking why a lot. Before Hulu, I was the UI lead at IPTV startup, and before that I ran my own web design company and freelanced on a huge range of digital projects. To me, user experience design is the glue that bonds technology’s potential to a healthy love of our digitized lives, and creating experiences that work with people is what I love to do. I have a blog about UX sound design called Beyond the Beep, I produce lots of music, and I think squash is the best sport ever.
A handful of the dozens of projects I designed or developed over the past few years:
