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, and B2B SAAS platforms.
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.
