Learning Design


Skills summary

  • I’m the glue that can bind a talented group of artists and engineers together to define a project’s berth—then lead it to its birth.
  • I love working with people and making great products for happy clients by being the bridge of communication between the creators and the consumers.
  • I pan for the gold of matching the usability, accessibility and discovering the end-user’s actual demand, to the means and needs of the stakeholders.
  • I can take arcane technical concepts and translate them to plain english in the form of user documentation and technical manuals.
  • I delight in pushing pixels/vectors around and experimenting with liquid/responsive designs or just rapidly prototype wireframes that a graphic design team turns into beautiful creations.
  • I can hand-code clean HTML/CSS.
  • I can understand and manipulate enough programming to finesse what a dev team or open-source produces.
  • On much smaller budgets I’ve been known to contract and ship a semblance of all the above single-handedly.
