Skills

I am a usability researcher by training, and my other interests include web dev, 2D and 3D design.

Art

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." - Albert Einstein

Me

I tend to think of myself as fitting at the intersection of arts and science. People often treat the two as separate but I view them as inextricably linked to making successful products.

Science
