Who am I?
I am a user experience designer in Montreal.
What does that mean?
Computers are almost impossibly complicated machines. As their power and ubiquity have increased expoentially in the last fifty years, we’ve also made huge strides in making them user-friendly, but there’s still a way to go.
We’ve become experts at building upon previous technologies to create the Next Great Thing; but every time we do, we need to step back and learn how this will work best for our users, as pleasantly, effortlessly, and seamlessly as possible. That means answering questions like:
- Does it do what I think it will?
- Does it say what I expect it will say? Do I understand what it says?
- When I start it up, do I know where to go and what to do?
That’s my job. I ask the questions, I get the research, I find the insights, and I help provide the direction so that what technology we deliver meets and exceeds our users’ expections.
Is that it?
When I’m not working, I’m a husband, father of two who loves to travel abroad, learn new things, and take pictures while he's at it.
