Although I am a kid at heart, I have been in the graphics and media industry for over 25 years and the web since late in 1993. I have worked as a UI designer, web designer, creative director, art director, professor, illustrator, and graphic designer. In recent years, I have been concentrating on UX (User eXperience) and UI (User Interface) design.
