I am the director of user experience at Universal Mind in Denver, Colorado and host of the Denver chapter of CreativeMornings.
In the past I was a UI developer and Design Researcher at EffectiveUI, where I worked for six and a half years.
I have a BS in Physics and Comp Sci and an MBA, just for kicks. I like good books and other folks who read them, watching good movies, and a good single malt. I like thinking about people - what makes us tick, and how we can be our best selves through the way we interact with each other, our tools, and the world around us.
Software, UI design, programming, prototyping, research, roman history, coffee, powergloves.

Rick Griffith The future of art education
All you need is love.
Take more chances. Make more art. Launch more often.
Our fear is a creative ally that we should treasure, and befriend, and become really intimate with on a daily, weekly, monthly basis.
If you are one of those people who doesn't cross the finish line, you are missing out on the very gift of making things...you become the person you were meant to be.
Every work we make makes us
The most meaningful and memorable moments of my life were brought on by moments of full body terror, so maybe I should start paying attention to them.
The very nature of our work as creative people forces us to stand outside of the norm - to step away from the status quo.
You are robbing yourself of the greatest thrill of your life - the thrill of putting your creative work out into the world.
