I am a UX Designer working for Bitovi. I love the creative challenges of understanding a user, designing interactions, and finding interesting aesthetic solutions. I am a Cinema 4D and After Effects motion graphic hobbyist. If you are short on time check out my Featured Work section and/or my daily Cinema 4D motion graphic renders.
For over 15 years I have worked as a creative professional in the design industry. I have 5 years of additional experience developing relationships with clients though freelance. I have always been drawn to the creative and handicraft. I received my Bachelors degree in Interactive Multimedia, my Masters in Human Computer Interaction with a focus in User Interaction, an MFA in Graphic Design with a focus on Designing with the user in mind, and a PhD in Human Computer Interaction, with a continued focus on User-Centered Design.
My HCI PhD dissertation, Understanding the user in online education focused on creating a better experience for the user in online and distance education. My MFA in Graphic Design thesis, Curriculum & course design: preparing graphic design & visual communication students focused on understanding the needs of the graphic design and visual communication industry and applying that back into higher education.
This year I decided to take part in an exercise where I output a new animation using Cinema 4D every day. I quickly found that work, being a dad, and general life stuff gets in the way of the one-a-day concept, so I have resolved to "render as much as possible".
