Interested in opportunities as:
User Experience and Interaction Designer
Web and Mobile Developer
I bring three sets of experience to clients and employers.
First, I have extensive experience in project/product management and have lectured to product managers on agile and scrum based development. My certifications include a Professional Project Manager (PMP) designation, Certified Scrum Master (CSM), in addition to have a Masters in Information Technology and an undergraduate degree in Anthropology with a focus on Cognitive Science from UC San Diego, where I studied under Donald Norman (best known for user centered design and his book, The Design of Everyday Things).
Second, my career and project experience includes mobile development, kiosk development, web user interaction design and development.
Third, my past responsibilities includes large scale IT technical project management at Saudi Aramco, Ampex and Cypress Semiconductor, where I had a full range of large business IT experience, including needs analysis, vendor shortlisting, RFI and RFQ development and evaluation, business process redesign and supporting IT requirements, project testing and roll out, change management and support for between 5,000 and 50,000 employees. I have both managed large teams and also worked hands-on to deliver smaller entrepreneurial projects individually. My recent work and training includes SaaS and cloud based applications, OTB gaming applications, health, legal and programming.
