As an expert in usability and user interaction, I believe in the merits of user centered design and designing for the user experience.


• Over 20 years experience designing applications, user interfaces, websites, and publications.

• In-depth knowledge of project lifecycle: user analysis, requirements, information architecture, GUI design, implementation, and testing in all phases.

• Expertise and practical application of human-computer interaction, navigation, and usability.

• Solid knowledge of both aesthetic and technical challenges and constraints.

• Exceptional cross-functional communication, interpersonal, and time-management skills.
