    I am user interface and user experience designer for a software consultancy specializing in touch screen software for mobile and embedded devices. I have worked on successful projects for clients such as Def Jam Records, NBA, NFL, Bad Robot, HP, Men's Health, and many others. Typically I work in a hybrid role where I develop the user experience by creating user profiles, information architecture, wireframes and simple mock ups. Depending on the size and the scope of the project our team collaborates together in order to create a meaningful experience for the end user. I then take the UX design and create pixel perfect user interfaces that are ready for implementation. This roll also includes working with other UX designers where I interpret their vision and create a visual design based on the experience and the clients branding. The following platforms I have worked on includes iOS. Android, Windows 8, and various embedded OSs. This role has also allowed me to understand HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Although I could not write code myself, I can understand what the code is doing.
