Most of my work has been in interaction design and user research, though Iʼve also held roles in programming, communications and teaching. In 2008, I worked as the lead designer for LinkedInʼs Address Book. Prior to that, I led the User Experience practice for Stanford University’s IT Department. Iʼve designed desktop and web applications, organizations, communications plans, user generated content sites and social web services. I’m currently available for individual contract work and for work on larger projects with my business partner Margaret Shear. If you’d like to chat about work, just email me at
