Human Factors Consultant

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. I also have a great track record at helping companies win SBIR and STTR Phase I and Phase II awards.

I work with engineers, industrial designers, and marketeers to ensure that their products are both usable and noteworthy. I advocate putting the user at the center of the design process--using tools such as rapid prototyping and usability testing. I am willing to provide assistance for urgent human-interface problems needing a quick fix, or on longer development projects.
