I am a Lead UX Architect at Citrix in South Florida where I live with my wife Nikki and our dogs (we call them our daughters) Layla and Cassidy. When I’m not designing, I’m trying to learn how the human mind works by reading books on psychology and behavior, or I’m talking someone’s ear off about the importance of designing for emotions. When I need a break from all that I like to grab my camera and get out in nature to get my “ Zen on” taking photos. Nature and wildlife photography is my artistic outlet and mental salvation.
