“Want your users to fall in love with your designs? Fall in
love with your users.” -Dana Chisnell
I am passionate about the way people use technology. I
love to talk to the users of a product; to understand their
desires and frustrations, and to use their insights to
create simple, beautiful user interfaces that have a high
degree of both desirability and usability.
