Recent Projects

I've been fortunate in my career to be part of great teams and work on interesting projects. Here is a selection of a few of my work samples:

Methodology

As a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) practitioner I rely upon a system of methods for investigating new problem spaces, validating design decisions, and testing for usability issues. These methods include:

Wireframing

Useful in ideating new features or systems.

Prototyping

Used for user testing as well as communicate designs with developers.

User Testing

Crucial element of UX Design used for uncovering usability issues & collect qualitative and quantitative data.

Interviews

Helpful for finding out users goals, needs, and pain-points.

Contextual Inquiry

Valuable tool for learning about users in their natural settings and gain new insights.

Observations

Useful for gaining insights into a new domain & learning user behavior.

Heuristic & Accessibility Evaluations

Used to quickly finding usability & accessibility issue by following accepted guidelines.

Competitive Analysis

Process of analyzing competitors in a particular domain, to learn how they handle common design problems.

Storyboarding

Visual tool for conceptualizing a design solution through storytelling, using quick sketches.

Card Sorting

Conducted on-line or in person to design an information architecture, and menu structures.

Journey Mapping

Used to plot out an ideal user's experience & visualize pain-points and opportunities for improvement.

Affinity Diagramming

Process of grouping insights into themes to gain understanding of a particular domain & generate requirements such as "user stories".

Sketching

Quick and easy way to generate initial design ideas. Good for rapid iteration.

Surveys

Used to collect qualitative & quantitative data. Can be distributed to a very large set of users, so statistical significance can be achieved.

Literature Review

Valuable way to save time by tapping into existing knowledge gained from previous studies.
