It all starts right here.

Today is the first day of the rest of your wonder-filled life.

And life is too short to spend any of it unhappy.

So let’s make the most of all that we have been blessed with…

Get out there and DANCE/ FIGHT/ LOVE!


Know in your heart, that there is always an answer for every problem you face.

Sometimes you just need the right perspective, so don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Humble thy self and reach out.

Connecting with each other is one of the most wonderful gifts in life.

Finding enjoyment in the little things is the best place to start.

Appreciation is the secret to happiness.




Fighting Spirit

“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.” –Arnold Schwarzenegger


Senior UX Designer and Project Leader

I started working professionally as a User Experience software designer in the year 2000.  I really enjoy applying heaps of empathy, usability testing, heuristic evaluations, iterative design, Scrums, Agile, Lean Six Sigma, TTM, CMM, QCDs, working with cross-functional teams, submitting US Patents, utilizing global resources, creating tools where none were available, and “mud-wrestling” with engineers and executives alike.

I grew up in verdant Vancouver, British Columbia.

I am currently enjoying sunny Southern California.

I work for the company who originally invented the graphical user interface, the GIF, and Ethernet (to name just a few feathers).

I constantly seek new challenges to hone the eminence of my own being.  With a combination of “To Be or Not To Be” and “I think, therefore I am”,  I coin the following sayings,

“To Think or Not To Think” and

“Where ignorance is bliss, wisdom is folly.”
