I've been in UX for many years. Starting with an internship in Human Factors right out of college, to a Masters degree in Human Factors, I've done it all. Whether it's remote usability testing, conducting tests, writing scripts, creating designs in illustrator or prototyping in bootstrap.
from 2013 to present day
At SeaChange I'm a member of an amazing team of UX practitioners. Here I've had the opportunity to do everything from basic wireframes in Axure to high fidelity mockups and interaction designs in Illustrator. Among my responsibilities are:
from 2010 to 2013
At RSA I was one of over 14 UX designers. There I had an opportunity to work on creating usability tests, running usability tests, creating different design artifacts and prototypes. Among my responsibilities were:
from 2007 to 2008
I began my career as a UX practitioner as an intern at First National Bank of Omaha. As part of the team I worked on the internal and external banking site. Among notable accomplishments:
from 2008 to 2011
I attended Northeastern University's Human Factors program and received a Master's degree in Industrial Engineering in January, 2011. At NU I took extensive coursework in statistical analysis, virtual environment development using 3D modeling and animation applications. All in addition to the standard Human Factors coursework and a thesis on the topic of building stanardized interfaces for networked home appliances.
from 2003 to 2007
I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and Communications (Journalism) from UNO.
I am a usability researcher by training, and my other interests include web dev, 2D and 3D design.
"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
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.
"The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers." - Isaac Asimov

Prototyping & Wireframing
This is a sampling of my final deliverables. For each of the items I can provide a full walkthrough from conceptual wireframes to final deliverables.
Final deliverable of a new product I developed from conceptual to final stage. Complete walkthrough available.
I live and breathe user research. From undergrad, to grad, to real-world experience and applications I have done numerous usability studies.
Conceptual stage of a new product and how the page could be laid out. This was first step in a fully interactive prototype.
This wireframe served as a basis for final interactive version in Axure and then converted into production HTML.
My award-winning iPad application. Fully interactive prototype showcasing my best work in terms of interaction design. Complete walkthrough available.
An interactive prototype from concept to final deliverable illustrating a complete application flow along with annotations. Complete walkthrough available.
Conceptual design of UI for Google Glass App that would help paraplegics and quadraplegics navigate using their eye movements.
This poster summarizes dense information into an easy-to-understand format.
A redesign of My Verizon Wireless for iPhone. Built to look and act native to iOS.
