Leadership of Software Development, Interaction design, User research

I’m an experienced software project leader & developer, and a UX Designer & Researcher. I can gather requirements, negotiate priorities, write user stories, and design in UML; I can also sketch wireframes and prototype a user interface. I’m comfortable presenting to any audience (including top executives) but I’m better at listening than talking. This portfolio showcases my UX Research/Design & Product Management skills, but I am open to any role where I can contribute to building a successful software product and further sharpen my skills.
