I have played the role of a Strategist, Designer, Consultant, Project Lead and more. I started one of the first web agencies in Southern California before migrating to the San Francisco Bay Area.
I focused primarily on Cold Fusion and database architecture before joining Sapient in 1999 as a Senior Information Architect. I was with the company for 4½ years before leaving as a Director of User Experience, then began my freelance career and worked for several design agencies including Frog, Extractable, Ammunition Group, and MetaDesign, where I was a partner.
At MetaDesign I was responsible for developing the company’s first Interaction Design practice and building out that part of the business. After the first year I had 7 people on my team including interaction designers and project managers. Although many on my team were junior when they started, they all went on to senior positions at other companies.
