UX Design Books

I've co-authored two books to help people learn about the fascinating field of Experience Design. Find out more about A Project Guide to UX Design and the newest, Adventures in Experience Design.

Speaking & Training

Looking to grow your design skills, or those of your team? I offer customized training courses for organizations - or you can apply for one of my ongoing design classes.

Event planners? Let me know of your needs for a speaker.

Consulting Services

Product strategy & design, organizational development, and customer insights through research and modeling are just a few of the ways I can help you and your team.

It's Hard to Work Human

We took "Adventures in Experience Design" to a local high school and held a 6-week course. Surprisingly, we found the hardest part for students wasn't generating new ideas, or choosing and forming the best ones. It was something that touched the core of their fears and insecurities.

Making Mindfulness a Part of Education

Last year, I was honored to participate in UX for Good, an organization that brings leading User Experience Designers together to focus on complex social challenges. In last year's challenge we partnered with the Dalai Lama Center in Vancouver in order to explore this question:

How can we make mindfulness training part of the education of every child?

Sonic Adventures

A little while back, Jim Jacoby and Jim Cohen interviewed me about Adventures in Experience Design, and it ended up being a lovely little overview of the inspiration for the book.

Finding Balance

Aaron Irizarry, Joel Beukelman and I chatted about balance, midlife decisions, and paparazzi weddings in Namibia in this recently posted episode of THE BLNCE.

Two Student Perspectives

Two students from the fall quarter Applied Interaction Design class talk about their experience with the craft practitioners and mentors who visited, as well as their instructor.

Carolyn was able to break down UI patterns, UX best practices and techniques to a level that made sense. She teaches what you need to know and how to apply it.
