Hey, I'm Matthew. I love learning and creating new things. I'm a creative technologist that lives by a simple principle - Our reality is only limited by our perception, and our perception is only limited by our knowledge. When I'm not designing solutions, I like to take roadtrips in my 77' Volkswagen bus and go scuba diving.

My Design Approach
Design does not emerge from a moment of inspiration alone. A "Design Mind" is never off, it constantly iterates through a creative process that takes in information, encodes data, and provide solutions. We all have the capacity to be creative and design, but what makes a designer unique is the approach they craft in solving issues.
While no two projects are alike, we can be certain my approach for identifying issues, crafting prototypes, and testing solutions will use a combination of the following:
Research and Analysis
First I interview stakeholders to learn about the product and brand to define business goals and conduct UX and market research. Based on this research project, I will develop a process that digs into what makes our users tick. I document users' thoughts, feelings, and actions through user testing and a combination of excerises listed below. When finished with this step I will have clearly outlined key product and user take-aways, define the problems I will solve, and the process I'm going to take to solve these issues.

Design and Develop
I will facilitate creative collaboration in the ideation process through structured team brainstorming sessions and engage with stakeholders and test users for feedback. Using the outlined user insights and interaction flow, I will create wireframes, sketches, and rapid prototypes.

Usability Testing and Evaluate
I use my front-end development skills to craft low and high fidelity prototypes, which I use to structure a series of user tests with specific outlined goals and a selected sample group. The feedback data gathered from these tests will be synthesized and the results will be used to drive the next steps in the design process.

My experience in enterprise E-commerce, tech start-ups, production studios, and continuous consulting work has allowed me to craft a diverse background of skills. These skills provide the high-level view to craft teams, products, and experiences. I'm a generalist when it comes to creative tools and I'm a specialist when it comes to strategizing and optimizing workflow.
