Hi, I’m David.


I’m a user experience professional who works with teams to identify business goals, map customer experiences, prioritize features and user stories, and create great interactions across channels and devices.

I’m a passionate trainer and mentor of clients and colleagues in creating interactive prototypes and UX pattern libraries, including teams at AutoZone and Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Journey mapWhatever it takes to capture stakeholder requirements and empathize with customers, I’ll do it — from seeding backlogs and creating customer journey maps to building interactive prototypes using Axure and UXPin.

I’ve worked with teams in education, banking, insurance, manufacturing, hospitality, and logistics; and clients like Hilton Worldwide, FedEx, Hogan Lovells, LexisNexis, ALSAC / St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Viking Range, Smith & Nephew, Colgate-Palmolive, Stephens Inc., and UBS Warburg.

I’ll help you create a site or app that speaks your customer’s language, anticipates their needs, and keeps them in charge — all within the framework of your business objectives.

Fast prototyping to refine requirements

A cheerleader supply company needed an innovative online catalog allowing sales reps and school contacts to create and customize new uniforms and place orders on the spot.

A children’s healthcare charity needed a better experience for their guests and volunteers at thousands of fundraising events nationwide each year. They wanted an app for phones and kiosks to let guests check in, bid on auction items, make donations, and pay for purchases. Volunteers needed to manage guests and auction activity without juggling paper. […]

Mentoring to build great teams

Teaching UX team-building concepts. Leading a design sprint and putting together a step-by-step guide for design sprint leaders. Leading a class in prototyping for dozens of people. Helping junior colleagues build solid work habits. It’s all part of mentoring, and it’s something I love.   Learning new concepts and skills is valuable for each of […]

Patient survey app

A behavioral healthcare provider was struggling to manage paper forms for patient admission, discharge, and followup surveys. Staff members spent hours manually keying data from stacks of paper into spreadsheets to track patient responses. Customer service reps waded through more paper to determine which discharged patients to call for followup and when. The project team […]

User Centered Design initiative leadership

Workflow management system

A major hospitality company wanted guests to select and upgrade rooms using a fully interactive online floor plan of each hotel — and they needed to be first to market with this innovation.
