User Interface Design Portfolio
This portfolio includes most of my major online projects from the last several years. Each main section includes a detailed description of my involvement in each project, as well as several screenshots. Unfortunately some of the products I've worked on over the years are no longer available, but hopefully the examples here can help recreate the experiences I've worked on. Please also check out my profile on LinkedIn to see what I've been up to most recently.
Mobile Computing Project
I was a student in Cornell's Interactive Media Group while getting my B.S. in Communication & Human / Computer Interaction. The lab focused on academic research into how people interact with computers, especially digital libraries, social networks, and mobile computing.
In additional to HCI coursework, I spent several semesters working on interactive HTML based experiences for mobile computers. I built a prototype application to help students learn & collect data while in the field.
Jump! was acquired by Microsoft, Inc. in the Spring of 1999 and integrated into MSN as MSN Calendar, a service of Hotmail.
OnShare.com created a powerful Peer-to-Peer file sharing system allowing users to securely share files from their personal computer with anyone on the Internet. I designed the software and the web site, which worked in tandem to build a large file sharing community. OnShare provided various community based features for sharing files, but also allowed individuals to securely share files between home and office computers.
I was the first employee and helped create the vision for OnShare. As Vice-President of Creative Design, I designed multiple versions of the OnShare web site and software.
Homestead builds intuitive, easy to use software that allows the average computer user to design and build their own web site. The product design team designs new and powerful functionality with emphasis on making our software easy to use for even the least computer savvy user. I led the product strategy and design of Homestead's newest product, PhotoSite, which allows any digital camera owner to manage and share their photos online.
In addition to designing Homestead's PhotoSite software, I have also managed major redesigns of the Homestead subscription process, Homestead.com, and PhotoSite.com.
