About me

Background

First tech job: writing support documentation and acting as webmaster for Hewlett-Packard’s Network Management Tools group. 

Since then I’ve worked as a database manager, intellectual property manager, management consultant, information architect, and ultimately, Sr. UX designer.

I have experience across multiple sectors: digital media, finance, consulting, government, public relations, big tech, pharma and sports.  

Educational background: BS – English literature, J.D. – Law.   I am the founder of Usergoals, a UX consultancy.
