Hi, I'm Nick.  I believe that a concise hypothesis can surface from what seems obscure. Perspective is the key to clarity.  I take an objective unbiased approach to what exists and I’m passionate about influencing systems that empower people. 

"With the pace of technology and volume of information, human-centered design becomes increasingly vital."

This year I’ve written a Lean UX Playbook that evangelizes Discount Usability Engineering/Guerrilla HCI for Agile IT Teams.

Previously, I spent five years with IBM contributing to usability research projects, data visualization dashboards, and multimodal machine learning applications. I was a design and development co-captain for AMEX - Watson Company Analyzer. I served as an interaction designer and UI developer for BMW - Watson Vehicle Selector.  I was the UI squad leader for CBRE - Watson Data Center Cooling Optimization.  I've co-facilitated IBM Design Thinking workshops at both Google and Apple.  Before all that, I studied Informatics focusing on Human-Computer Interaction and earned wages as a full-stack developer.

On a personal note, I’m a husband, a dad, and an avid runner. If I had a personal day, I'd be fly fishing, golfing, or wake surfing.  I'm also into non-fiction reads, alt-rock noise, coffee, and seeing new places.  I’ve always had an unwavering appreciation for the work of Frank Lloyd Wright.  

Thanks for stopping by.

Big Questions and Big Spaceships.

 

I believe a concise hypothesis can surface from something obscure. I believe that fundamentals, perspective, and practice will help bring clarity.  With the unyielding pace of technology and information – human-centered design becomes more and more vital.  I take an objective unbiased approach to what exists and I’m passionate about influencing systems that empower people.  

 So far in 2019, I’ve written a Lean UX Playbook that evangelizes Discount Usability Engineering, Guerrilla HCI and Design Thinking for Agile IT Teams.

Previously, I spent five years with IBM working on usability research projects, data visualization dashboards, and multimodal machine learning applications. I directed usability research for DTE Energy’s new payment portal. I was a design and development co-captain for AMEX’s Watson Company Analyzer. I served as a principal interaction designer and UI developer for BMW’s Watson Vehicle Selector proof-of-concept.  I was the UI squad leader for CBRE’s Watson Data Center Cooling Optimization proof-of-concept.  I also co-facilitated IBM Design Thinking workshops at Google (Mt. View, Ca.) and Apple (Cupertino, Ca.)

On a personal note, I’m a husband, a dad, and an avid runner. That’s typically all that fits in a given day. If lucky enough to do other things, I like to fly fish, golf, and wake surf.  I like alt/indie rock noise, non-fiction, coffee, and traveling.
