I run Firecat Studio, a UX strategy consultancy in San Antonio, TX, and I work for Continuum Analytics in Austin, the exciting startup that creates Anaconda, the powerful open source data science platform. I enjoy alternating between large enterprise digital presence projects, with their larger budgets, big teams, and longer timelines, and smaller projects where we get farther, faster, and can experiment more.
I've spent significant time in the financial services industry, the technology sector, healthcare, travel, education, and government. I enjoy startups and am a serial entrepreneur.
I empower people with digital strategy and education, so they and their teams can make authentic connections. Figuring out what should be automated, and what interactions require a warm human touch is very exciting to me. I'm currently studying blockchain technologies and artificial intelligence, and I'm interested in helping people have appropriate control over their attention and the data that concerns them.
The space where websites, intranets, email, mobile devices, social media, SEO, content strategy, marketing and metrics come together is my domain. Brainstorming and sketching possibilities on a writeboard with a team is my idea of a swinging good time. Low-fidelity wireframing rocks.
I'm involved in the worldwide TEDx community and am an organizer of TEDxSanAntonio. I believe in bringing more diverse perspectives together to help us learn faster and make the world a better place.
