Hello. My name is Ken and I’m a UX designer building useful digital products. I work with big brands and small startups to build the right solution for the right opportunity through user research, testing, and iterative design sprints. The key is to experiment and learn.

I work on a wide range of projects – building a new social media platform, designing all manner of mobile apps, defining features and requirements for enterprise-class brand sites. I’m personally interested in making online retail (emphasis on mobile) smarter. I’ve designed a number of ecommerce sites that collectively process over $5.5 billion in sales annually.
