I am a designer and journalist by training and a technologist by curiosity and experience. Welding all that together to create something wonderful and elegant is where I find my zen.
I've been lucky enough to be able to do just that at the State of Michigan. So far I've helped build an enterprise User Experience team at the State of Michigan and have done everything from small site redesigns to leading user research and design projects for large-scale web applications.
I love this stuff.
