My Design Ethos
I believe that access to technology is a human right. People deserve products that are valuable, intuitive, and supportive. Accessibility and usability are essential - and they should not be considered charity work or an after-thought, but rather a critical aspect of technology.
In the design process, I value a balance of creative experimentation and focused efficiency. I draw inspiration from many years of mixed media painting and collage and my time as an Industrial Design student. I believe in the power of working with integrated teams and have deep respect for my colleagues in the agile development process.
The following principles have been highly influential to me: Allied Media's Design Justice Principles, Sins Invalid's Disability Justice Principles, and Jakob Nielsen's Usability Heuristics.
