UX UI AI Leadership

From the days when we used to design and code in HTML and Flash to modern masterpieces of UI & UX intelligence, I cut my teeth in digital and have continued to live in it since 2001. I still actively design while also leading UX & UI design teams. I have brought multiple platforms, innovations, apps, and digital marketing campaigns to market. My core UX skillset is in planning, strategy, research & discovery interviews, information architecture, UX documentation, flows, data flow mapping, 3rd party data flow mapping with requirements, wireframes and prototyping.
