Summary

I've got over a decade of experience in interface design and human-computer interaction. Most of my freelance work involves identity design, logos, promotional materials and prepress. I'm big into typography, print layout, photography, composition, filming, video editing / production, audio recording and mixing. I'm constantly deconstructing, analyzing and demonstrating the positive and negative aspects of products, from ease of use to productivity to safety issues.
