Hey! I'm Joel.
I'm a User experience pro in Denver, CO. I like building software, Bikes, furniture, A perfect omelette....
I'm certified by HFI as both a usability analyst and user experience analyst, and in November 2005 I was salesman of the month at Diamond Chevrolet in North Carolina. True story.
Over the last 12+ years I've honed my user centered design skills on ecommerce website and web & mobile apps. My work as an experience designer spans retail, non profit, financial services, SAAS platforms, and real life with the tech conference I co-founded.
My forté is building and leading user experience teams to fit the needs of growing businesses. I'm comfortable hiring, mentoring, and directing people, but I fit best in organizations where I can also do hands-on UX design work with my team.
