I'm a design professional with 20 years of experience. I've managed multidisciplinary creative teams and designed for large consumer sites like AOL and EarthLink at the heights of their influence, and I've been a creative jack-of-all-trades for startups in the entertainment and consumer spaces. I've done everything from user interface and user experience, to illustration and video, to usability and focus groups, to roadmaps for technology, product, and brand direction. I'm passionate about great design, compelling brand experiences, and making technology accessible to everyone.

Before The Internet

I spent several years as part of a two-person design studio, DKG Design, and it's here that I started working with AOL on offline and online products. I met with clients, developed concepts, coordinated with vendors, designed and programmed multimedia CD-ROMs, produced illustrations and animations. Clients included: America Online, Britches of Georgetowne and STX Lacrosse. Before that, I was part of a small in-house design team for Coming Attractions, a sportswear manufacturer.
