I help individuals and teams roll out new technology, moving it from the back room into the hands of users and customers.
Previous clients have ranged from multi-national manufacturing companies to iconoclastic solo creators. I also help roll out books and interactive projects as a developmental editor.
Decades of start-up experience, along with my degrees, qualify me to lead or participate in user experience design, research, usability1, quality assurance, documentation, customer care, sales support, and training. I often handle multiple roles (as needed) and then hand them over cleanly as a team expands.
I enjoy the roller-coaster2 of product develoment, both as an independent consultant and as a Business Analyst at Parthenon Software.
 For best results design and usability are covered by different people; most employers choose 2-5 skills from this list.
