Currently I am working as a UX/UI Visual Design Consultant at Akamai Technologies. I started working with Akamai in the early years (1998) working on many of the original nocc screens to help monitor the entire Akamai network. Recently I’ve happily rejoined the uxd team with a focus on making the Luna Control Center the best user-centered, self-service experience.
My experience has been broad from start-ups to larger corporations such as AccuWeather, Bell Atlantic, Water Environment Federation, and Mullen, focusing on visual ui/branding/marketing for software applications/broadcast/multimedia training/web and mobile. Although I have experience with print design, my start and focus over the last 20 years has always been screen design. I’ve held many roles from production artist/animator/developer to design director, but my key strengths and ongoing passion is in researching and understanding how to visually organize information on many of the ongoing changes with new media. I live north of Boston in a working artist mill community, with my drooling Dogue De Bordeaux (Torque) and my two relaxed cats. In my spare time I like to collect vintage electronics and create art using mixed media. I also enjoy being adventurous on hikes, kayaking/boating and fast motorcycling.
