I solve challenging interaction design issues for my clients, working to improve ROI and reduce risk on their design investments. As a hands-on UX architect and designer well-versed in Agile development, I have a passion for designing scalable, easy-to-use products.

My portfolio includes innovative networked product experiences spanning the web, mobile and wireless. Much of my client work has been on enterprise UX design (including Enterprise IT, virtualization, mobile, healthcare and financial services) and mobile platform system design for enabling UX. I'm an inventor on over a dozen software patents related to software user experiences. In 2002, I authored the first business book linking online user experience to profitability, published by McGraw-Hill in New York.

My formal education includes an M.S. from the MIT Media Laboratory in Cambridge, MA where I focused on developing algorithms to enhance gestural UIs. I also earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Tufts University in Medford, MA, where I have taught in the Computer Science Department at the undergraduate/graduate level.
