Doug joined our team as the Director of User Experience at a time when we had no design or UX resources. He capably filled several roles in both design and user experience. Doug also showed he's experienced in working with product teams, knowing the language and processes, fitting well into our team, and even being proactive in suggesting and implementing ideas to improve our ideation process. He has a broad range of experience and skills (including drummer and drone pilot!) that I think would benefit any tech company.
SVP Sales & Operations, FinSync
Doug knows his business. He's completely fluent in UX/UI and able to translate business and user goals into sets of requirements and designs that developers can easily understand and implement, and end-users find intuitive. He's also a very genuine and compassionate person who seeks to understand his coworkers and work with them the way they wanted to be worked with, always with an eye toward the overall strategy of the company.
Business Development | Talent Management
On a number of occasions, I've hired Doug to design, develop and deploy internet and intranet sites. He always delivered insightful and creative solutions as well as a quality work product. Even though his expertise resides in the IT world, we hired Doug to work within our marketing department to help bridge the gaps between marketing, sales and IT. The result of this collaborative effort gave us a better product, delivered on time and on target with our exact business requirements. Gotta love that...
Art Director and Designer
Doug is a great guy who is very knowledgeable in web design and all that encompasses the web. I've worked with him on several projects and he's always a pleasure to work with. If he doesn't know the answer to something, he'll find it, but usually if it's web-related, he's on top of it and probably already knows it already. On top of that, he's creative-minded and is very skilled in talking through ideas in order to find solutions.
CTO / Internet Executive, Advisor, Entrepreneur
I worked with Doug at Toyota on the Dealer Daily site. He was challenged to create a completely new UI for the portal. In a very short period of time Doug was able to present the team and management with several unique options. His knowledge and expertise of design and current technology trends was very impressive. Doug understands the importance of user experience and navigation and it comes through in his design. He is a great addition to any team.
