I am a hands-on user experience practitioner well-versed in Agile software development with a passion for designing scalable, easy-to-use products.

My portfolio includes world-class, innovative networked product experiences spanning the web, mobile and wireless. 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.
