I am a user experience leader living and working in the South Bay. I’ve been at it for more than 15 years, launching web sites and products for Sony, PayPal, and now Symantec. I’m comfortable with complex enterprise software solutions as well as intuitive consumer offerings.
I have served in a variety of roles, including content strategist, UI designer, and UX management. I don’t see myself as a generalist, but I feel my wide-ranging experience has been really helpful furthering my interests in design leadership.
I really enjoy collaborating with other UX professionals, and I feel a manager has failed if everyone is painfully aware of any kind of power hierarchy; you should be seen as much more of a facilitator than a dictator.
