Hi there! I'm Doug!
I am a UX/UI Researcher and Designer who likes working within an interdisciplinary team to create empathetic and engaging user experiences for a variety of products and services. I have an industrial design background, over 20 years of visual and web design experience, and now I have leveled-up my skills to include UX research and testing methods. I really enjoy taking a deep dive into a project — both the “big picture” stuff and the tiny details. I savor great user stories and get energized by each new insight discovered. I love applying my experiences, creativity and problem-solving skills to designing meaningful solutions to life’s challenges.
In addition to my design work, I am president of the board of directors of the Celtic Arts Center of Southern California, a non-profit cultural arts organization. In that role, I lead an all-volunteer crew in offering cultural arts programming like workshops in Irish language and dance, traditional Celtic music jam sessions, and seasonal holiday events. I find joy and happiness in gardening, exploring wild places in nature, and connecting with interesting people.
