Overview

Let me help you conceptualize, design and test your next-generation head- or body-mounted, handheld, desktop or integrated display or imaging device. Infusing usability into your product at the earliest possible design phase will be repayed in increased sales and fewer calls for customer service. I have a deep understanding of the interplay and equivalence of perception and action, and these concepts underlie the utility and preference for human-intensive display products and systems.
