I'm into usability and accessibility.

I'm a usability professional interested in the crossroads of language, culture, accessibility and usability. I bring over a decade of experience on teams of all sizes and types working in design, user experience, research and front end web development.

My typical process begins with gathering an understanding of the user and their desired process, followed by prototype designs, user feedback and iteration. I also dive into streamlining business processes on occasion.

I strive for usable software that accomodates all users, and push for organizational adherence to the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines to ensure products I work on are accessibile.
