What is your interest in the field of User Experience? (ie, do you work as a UX designer or architect? Are you a student?

I am a UX Architect and founder with decades of experience in user interface design. I have worked at Apple's Human Interface Group and Microsoft in both Microsoft Research and Product Groups. I started Microsoft Interaction Design Research group in Beijing, China and was the Creative Director of the studio there. I was also the Director of User Experience for Enterprise Healthcare. I did the original work in Interactive Quick and meta-authoring tools at Apple. I was co-founder of the children's software company ImaginEngine. I create PhotoStory for Microsoft and was the UX approver in the shiproom for Vista. I worked on Microsoft Surface, Windows Mobile, and Enterprise Healthcare. I also designed the UI for Microsoft's version of Hadoop. I recently left Microsoft to form a UX consulting company called Advanced UX. We have relocated the company to Santa Monica to provide UX services for the start-up community here. Looking forward to meeting my UX peers in the area!

What kind of programs would you like to see? What kinds of events would further your career?
