About My Business:

 

I define and design products and services that are a pleasure to use, that inspire customers, and honor the bottom line. This includes insight into product strategy, customers, and the development of actionable blueprints. My expertise is solving difficult product design problems, from broadly targeted services to complex business applications. This helps build brand, customer base, revenue, shorten development cycles, trim training and support costs. I deliver schematics for innovative, well-behaved products and services that developers can build, sales can sell, and customers actually like to use. This also includes discovery of new opportunities and translation of unmet needs. This is the translation of "what we see" to "what it means" to "why it matters." I provide strategy and direction, designing superior, relevant offerings that are usable and profitable. As my form and frameworks are agnostic and centered on human experience, my work is cross-industry. I offer an array of practices including defining strategy from context and culture, then designing for human-centered needs (tacit or realized), based on behavioral, emotional and experiential elements, interdependent and interactive. (As a Medical Psychologist, I also offer a breadth of clinical experience serving, e.g., Ortho-Neuro-Rehab, Ob-Gyn, Internal Medicine patients, applying this expertise, as relevant). I seek balanced consideration of user needs, business models and technical feasibility. I work with executive stakeholders and multidisciplinary teams; I have delivered on multi-year internal and external investments up to 9M with fine customers such as: American Express (NY) Black & Decker (CA) Grainger (IL) Howard Hughes Medical Institute (MD) * Intel (OR) Knight-Ridder (CA) L'Oreal (NY) Nike (OR) Sybase (CA) Trimble (CA) TriZetto Health (AZ) * 2010 Nielsen Norman Award Specialties Interaction and Product Design, User Experience Design, Information Architecture, Design-Planning and Strategy; User Studies, Personas, Use Case Flows, Wireframes, Models and Prototypes . . . Observe, learn, think, create, fail fast. Assure that new and existing products and services are relevant, desirable, successful. Expertise for organizing and accomplishing human-centered methods, such that every design built works.
