Designing Mobile Experiences Off and On for 7 Years
Mobile App Design is something I have a personal passion for in large part because it provides an opportunity to create incredibly useful experiences with focused and elegant interfaces.
Senior Designer :: 4.5 years
As the lead designer for both the web and mobile platforms for TiVo, I led the design efforts for a wide variety of projects. During my time at TiVo, I became an integral part of the decision-making product teams of which I was a part. As a result, I was one of only two designers promoted to Senior Designer on a design team of 15 people.
Web Designer :: 2.5 years
I worked as an all-purpose web designer and developer for the Color Usage Research Lab at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA. For the lab, I created two key web sites, performed user analysis for air traffic control software, and consulted on the UI of a java-based color selection tool. Perhaps my most valuable experience at the Lab was having the opportunity to learn about the use of color in complex information displays from one of the field's most prominent research scientists, Dr. Larry Arrend.
