A little more about me...

 

10+ years working professionally on tackling UX and design challenges, researching and advancing the needs of users, and advocating for them in both large-scale, industry leading companies as well as small, collaborative start-up teams.

Solve complex problems with polished, neat, data-backed solutions and deliverables.

Skilled in balancing business goals and requirements with the essential needs and wants of a user, and willing to go to bat for them in a board room or conference call.

Leadership in cross functional, creative teams. Relish in synergistic, diverse teams of skilled colleagues working side-by-side to bring innovative designs and problem-solving solutions to users, customers and guests.

Solid history of effective and complementary work with other UXers, developers, stakeholders, visual designers, and business leaders to bridge divides and get things done.

I worked with Drew for over three years and it doesn’t take long to realize that he is pure talent. The value he brings to the table is equaled only by his passion to create excellence. The user experiences and designs that he forges are meticulously done. Any company would be lucky to have Drew focus his attention on their products. It has been an honor to have him on my team and I wish him all success in his career.
