As an experienced creative director, designer, and manager my curiosity and dedication have generated an innovative record in a series of disruptive technologies during their exciting opening acts.
I am comfortable navigating unexplored territory. Beginning with 3D computer graphics – as a partner in building two companies (from start-up to acquisition) pioneering high-end 3D video games, and real-time 3D visualizations. To the present, at HERE Technologies, where I forged tools and teams for the industrial-scale production of accurate lane-level 3D maps – for the new age of autonomous navigation and rich 3D location-based applications and services.
Most recently I’ve been designing and directing development of interactive 3D prototypes and concept visualizations — to explore, engage, inspire, and inform — featuring 3D maps, HMI design UX, digital twins, autonomous vehicle simulation, 5G network planning, and smart city use-cases.
Along with hands-on design and execution of concepts, prototypes, tools, UIs, and products, I've used forward-thinking vision and wide expertise to build and direct creative teams to deliver novel solutions.
I’m at home outnumbered by developers and engineers, since I’m certain only a tight collaboration between art and a lot of science yields extraordinary results. As a passionate champion of the end-user, I am an energetic catalyst across design, engineering, product, and management.
I am exploring new opportunities to apply my broad design, product, and management experience to exciting new technologies – and help usher in the next-generation of useful, usable, and compelling user experiences.
I frequently imagine a world where we all interact with technology and data in a more natural, immersive, and inspiring way. I feel a kind of nostalgia for that future, and a determination to help make it real.
