Thanks for your interest in my work! I get a lot of inquiries for my services that are often not appropriate and so I hope you can take one minute to read this and understand what types of gigs are best to send my way. The good news is that as of Dec. 1, I am entertaining new clients/projects for the fall.
I am a product designer. I welcome inquiries about very senior UX/UI/interaction design projects, primarily in the software/application space. In addition to designing, I also teach design thinking to business/product groups, help bridge engineering/product group gaps, and can help with developing/hiring a company's internal design team.
Please don't send me engineer or web development roles. While I have a strong technical background in development and prototyping and express my designs in code whenever possible, I do not entertain straight development or engineering positions.
If you do have a design opportunity that looks appropriate, please note that due to permanent time constraints, I'm only available for p/t consulting engagements: I am not interested in 40-hr/week contracts, permanent job offers, and relocation requests. I prefer Boston/NYC-area projects, especially startups, but I welcome telecommuting projects and have built and managed products with distributed teams.
I apologize for this generic reply letter, but I hope it saves you and me a little time. If you have something that seems like a good fit, please send me an email (no cold calls please) with the title, complete job description, project information, and name of the client if you are a recruiter. If it seems like a good fit, we can schedule a call. Good luck with your search!
p.s. Sorry, but I do not accept Linked-In friend requests from recruiters I haven't met personally.
