About the Scott

I’m a senior level user experience consultant who has worked on everything from marketing blurbs to enterprise portal applications. I’m a strong believer in excellent design, exceptional usability and all other aspects of the user experience involving a product’s development – not to mention being an advocate for solid processes to make all of these aspects possible. I am seeking ways to make a difference beyond merely accruing money and gadgets, especially through the craft and perspective of my profession.

Specialties

user experience, information design, interaction design, front-end development, community interaction, being gravity

Now that you’ve re-read my LinkedIn bio, I’ll dig in a little more.

I really dig this whole user experience thing.  I started off in the industry during the little rollercoaster of the late 90’s dot-com ‘era’ as an HTML coder because, frankly, I didn’t know what direction I wanted in my life.  While designing web sites, I began to appreciate the principles behind what-went-where-and-why, had some wonderful mentoring done early on and met many kick-ass people in a variety of roles and places.  Somewhere along the way, a co-worker introduced me to the works of Edward Tufte, whose ideas and ideals of clear and beautiful presentation of information (as content) set me off exploring into what can be done with the pages being designed to make them as usable as they are ‘pretty’.  Discussions with library science-focused friends led me to the concept of the Information Architect and User Experience Design, all of which ignited a passion within me that I never thought would happen.

And so here we are now. I currently work for a rapidly growing health insurance software company in the Dunwoody area, and I never thought I’d know so much about your insurance codes.

We’re sincerely trying to make it easier on you!
