I am a UX Designer and Engineer.
I love design and writing a bit of code. I’ve always found it hard to choose between front-end development and design. As a User Experience Designer and Engineer, I get to do both.
A life-long learner, I enjoy spending time on Linkedin Learning. I can also recommend the Udacity nanodegree programs. I’ve completed both the User Experience Designer and Front-End Web Developer nanodegree programs. They helped me unlock where to focus my attention.
I’ve spent most of my career in technology from building a small software company to creating an e-commerce business mentioned in the Wall Street Journal.
A graduate of Texas A&M University, I earned a BS in Horticulture. Yes, that’s right — the science of cultivating plants! To me, nature is the perfect combination of math, science, and design. Are you sensing a theme here?
Seems I’m always hanging out where the left and right brain meet. For me, it’s an interesting space.
I enjoy writing and sharing what I’ve learned. You can find my tutorials and posts here. I’ve written numerous gardening articles for Buchanan’s Native Plants.
The co-host of Rethink.fm – the forward-thinking podcast about usability and experience design.
Along with my two co-hosts Cathi Bosco and Monique Dubbelman, we discuss the positive impact we can make together through usability research and design.
My spare time
I love everything garden, propagating plants, and designing landscapes. I write about my garden antics on my blog, Southern Post Journal.
I’m a geek at heart and a huge sci-fi fan. I believe science fiction inspires innovation.
