My career has been distinguished by a wide variety of accomplishments. I began designing online interfaces in 1995 while I was a graduate student at Art Center College of Design and working at the Los Angeles Times on their first Web site. Since then I have designed hundreds of projects for well-known companies (including Audi, Louis Vuitton, the New York Times, the Smithsonian Institute, Glamour, UniCredit, Bank of America, McKesson, Visa, Pfizer, Merck, and Zappos), managed two of my own design firms (Chroma Design and Cognigencia), worked as the head of design at Motorola and Saatchi & Saatchi, taught at a three different universities, won over a dozen awards and hold two patents for user interface innovations while designing the National Geographic site.
In recent years my career has taken on an international perspective. I'm currently located in San Francisco, California and have an additional office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have worked on individual assignments in Paris, London, Tokyo, Beijing, São Paulo and in the US have lived and worked in San Francisco, New York City and Los Angeles.
