Background

About Brian

Essentially, I am a UX Director that has led large re-design projects (e-commerce and brand sites for major brands on behalf of top interactive agencies) as well as mobile app and platform design projects (mobile game for a major wireless carrier, Spotify music app for a major soft drink company, social/fashion app for a beauty brand).

With my agency/corporate clients, I am passionate about helping clients put customer thinking at the forefront of their interactive projects, recognizing the crucial link with great experiences and achieving business goals. I am equally committed to building great working relationships with project team members...I always say I work FOR the people I work with as much as I do for our client.

I spent a good part of the last few years working with the principal founders of two web startups to bring their ideas to life. One was a social goal accomplishment platform—PopGoal. The other was a neighborhood social network platform—Hey, Neighbor! I've learned a ton in the last couple years about the edge between success and failure in a startup, and I'm ready to apply that knowledge, along with my desire to succeed, in leading a successful startup of my own along with a co-founding partner.
