UX Portfolio

PLEASE NOTE:
This page has not been updated since 2014 (prior to my joining the Frontend.com team), most of my professional work is under NDA. If you would like to get a sense of my experience post-2014, please contact me.

 

Pulling from my experiences in startups, project management and marketing, I relocated to Chicago to immerse myself in the field of User Experience Design. During my time in Chicago I have had the great opportunity to interact with numerous UX professionals and work on some great projects, some of which are outlined below.

SHERBIT APP Case Study
This project, for San Francisco based Sherbit.io, was perhaps the most exciting project I have had the opportunity to work on to date. The app is still in development and is expected to launch in Spring 2015. Click the Case Study image below to see how the process unfolded.

SAVVO ‘BEERMAPPER’ APP Case Study
Already launched as a V1 in the Canadian market, Savvo were aware that their ‘BeerMapper’ app was not user-friendly and failed to guide users through to an end goal. Eager for a Christmas launch, Savvo needed a design solution that provided value to the end user which they could implement in a short time-period.
