Years of frustration working in IT : ) I have over 20 years of experience evaluating the usability of software, apps and websites. I have witnessed the shifts and trends in software evolution and have listened to and experienced the frustrations of end-users. With this knowledge I can help guide the software design process to achieve the best possible user-friendly product. I believe the concept of User-Friendly has been lost over the years, creating a huge gap between programmers/designers and end-users. I can help fill the gap with my user-interface best practice criteria list which I compiled based on the hundreds of apps, software, and websites with which I have interacted. Not surprisingly, very few software programs meet these criteria. I am often horrified by the needless complexity of software, apps or website navigation from a user interface perspective. I have skill and insight on how to improve and simplify these software programs.
I am a User Experience Design Consultant committed to improving the end-user interface experience. I look forward to discussing and learning from everyone.
Great group. Glad to be part of the team. I look forward to more meetups.
