About Me

mark_casualI originally started on the computer as a graphic designer/desktop publisher and then migrated to multimedia/web development. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Vermont in psychology and studio art. I received my Masters degree in psychology at UMass Boston. I provide consultation as a web developer contractor, specializing in UI development. My experience in the UX/UI field spans 17+ years.

A passion of mine is combining user interface design with programming to achieve a clean, minimalist experience for technology users. Good UX/UI is about evoking a positive emotional response in the customer. Cluttered and confusing interfaces leave people with a negative feeling leading to decreased site traffic and app use and a poor user experience.
