I am a motivated, goal-oriented, versatile professional with sixteen years' experience in enterprise application user interface design and development and thirty years' experience in software development.
My early career in Support and Training afforded me the ability to view applications "through the user's eyes". This combined with my passion for technologies, understanding of solid User Experience practices and full SDLC experience assures I provide a complete, maintainable, expandable solution that is timely, code compliant and guarantees a strong ROI.
This unique blend abilties and experience allows me to create intuitive and effective code templates that exceed users' needs that are easily leveraged by developers to merely "plug in" their code.
Working closely with client users, product and project managers, business analysts and developers, I build proof-of-concept mockups and high-fidelity functional prototypes of applications and features.
I also have extensive experience defining user interface design standards and patterns for corporate applications to assure efficient coding and an integrated and consistent look and feel across applications.
My experience building enterprise applications and internet sites spans conception to implementation including task analysis, conceptualization, wireframing, requirements, process flows, prototyping and backend integration.
My diverse business background, including software development, systems design and implementation, documentation, needs analysis and project management provide added value to my skillset. Industry experiences include communications, banking and financial, health care, insurance, eCommerce and manufacturing.
