A Little About Me

Why UI/UX? Because I’ve finally found something that incorporates ALL of my skills. Like Steve Jobs said "You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future," and basically . . . I'm connected! UI/UX combines psychology, empathy, problem solving, communications, business, writing, analytics, testing, coding and design—all things I either love to do or study and learn more about.

I particularly enjoy design that is married with functionality in a way that makes it simple, easy, logical, intuitive, effective, clean and beautiful no matter what the medium or domain; but as digital experiences are my thing (ok, second to music) then it has to be UI/UX for me.

Books I've Written

Mind Right by Lorraine Phillips

Mind Right: Change the Way You Think to Create a Life You Love

Do you want more out of life? Have you not achieved some of the results you would like? Are you not doing the things you know you should? Or are you just not sure which direction to go next? Many of us are faced with the dilemma of trying to find the answers to these questions. We have been taught that success comes from 80 percent action and 20 percent thought. But this equation is wrong: true success comes from 80 percent thought and 20 percent action. There is nothing in your life that you cannot change, modify, or improve simply by changing the way you think.
