Biography

Graham J McDonald
UX/UI Designer, Software Engineer, Architect, Consultant. CSM, PSD

I work mainly as a designer/developer in the UX/UI domain using the Microsoft stack. Blend, Silverlight, WPF, Windows 8 Metro. I have over 25 years of IT experience in design and development roles for major global players in finance, industry, adverising, miltary and government - over three years working in Scrum teams. I am based in Switzerland. I currently hold both Certified Scrum Master and Professional Scrum Developer (PSD 1) status.

As well as being a CSM/PSD I have studied Electronics and Electrical Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Psychology, Philosophy and Sociology in Sport.

I blog rather infrequently at http://intelligence4.wordpress.com about things that interest me as well as the experience I have gained for my work and contact with others.
