I am a senior consultant with over 12 years experience; and I excel at integrating the business goals of my clients with the needs of their customers.

In 2007 I was with Nokia, conducting UI and usability work for multimedia applications on Nseries mobile devices. Prior to Nokia, I worked with two leading Web agencies, schark!/T4G and Fjord Interactive, for over 7 years and was responsible for leading user-centred design for sites, applications and products for brands such as Tourism BC, Canadian Tourism Commission, Ericsson, Cingular, Parks Canada, Ballard Power Systems, BC Hydro, Manitoba Telecom, Hitachi Digital Storage Solutions, Algorithmics, General Motors Canada, the oneworld airline alliance and canada.com.

I've led multi-disciplinary teams, facilitating strategic planning, discovery and requirements gathering processes and have a talent for working collaboratively and openly with clients and team members to arrive at useful, usable and successful end-products.
