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 1 minute to read this and understand what types of gigs I seek.
Being a designer, I welcome inquiries about very senior UX/UI/interaction design projects, primarily in the software space. Additionally, I teach design thinking to business/product groups, help bridge engineering/product group gaps, and can help with hiring strong design teams internally.
I realize you may be looking for a great UI developer or engineer, however, please don't send me these roles for consideration. Writing code and/or prototyping is something I do as part of a design engagement only, depending on the project and client needs.
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 work primarily in the Boston metro area (and a little NYC), but I welcome offsite projects too. Occasionally, I will do half or full day "design jams" with companies just needing "a little help" or a product kickstart.
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 company (yes, you have to tell me, sorry). If it seems like a good fit, we can schedule a call. Good luck with your search!
p.s. I do not accept Linked-In friend requests from recruiters I haven't met personally and sorry, but I don't know anyone looking for jobs in the tech community and I do not send unsolicited job offers to my network.
