Hi, I'm Chris and I'm an artist who believes intuitive functionality is art that we can all appreciate and use meaningfully. I'm creative, passionate, diligent, and great with people. I'm also an ILLUSTRATOR, GRAPHIC DESIGNER, WRITER, CUSTOMER SERVICE FANATIC, FATHER, and COMIC GEEK.
I am experienced in all UX roles with my strength being visuals. My ability to clearly and quickly create storyboards helps the design team empathize with user scenarios. I also love wireframing and mockups.
I work well alone but thrive in a team environment. I'm happy to present to stakeholders and enjoy conducting interviews and user-testing sessions. I put people at ease and allow them to open up and give honest responses.
I am extremely organized, deadline-oriented, and a good time manager. As a father with two other jobs, I'm used to juggling multiple responsibilities at the same time. Assess, plan, focus, repeat.
