Greetings!

Web Development | UI Designer | IT Business Analyst | Multimedia Specialist | Trainer

I am an independent contractor working with a variety of clients from small business owners to State, Federal and Fortune 50 companies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Lockheed Martin and Allstate Insurance Company.

I started my career working at 20th Century Fox which was a great foundation on learning how to communicate a compelling story. Conveying the right message using the appropriate media is a major key in attracting and engaging an audience. After a long writers' strike in the 80's, I changed careers to IT including graphic design, user interface design and web development. This natural evolution has helped me keep focused on the user-centered experience while providing the best technology available. As an IT Business Analyst I work closely with the customer and developers to provide the necessary documentation and requirements to ensure the project's success.

While coding is critical for a project's success UX Design, or more appropriately, User-Centered Design. User-centered design helps us to focus on understanding user behavior when interacting with software. The goal is for the application to provide the most effective response to the user needs, which is a process of testing, evaluation and implementation.

I also enjoy giving back to the community and helping new designers and developers, and have authored several training CD's for VTC. My goal is to make technology work for my customers, creating engaging and innovative solutions. Since 2003 I have worked as an independent contractor providing web design & development, IT Business Analyst and training services.
