Although my title is Information Architect, I often describe myself as User Advocate. People visit Web sites for information, entertainment, or services, and it's my job to help them succeed quickly, simply, and sensibly.
By combining my diverse backgrounds in publishing and entertainment with my eye for detail, I develop customized information delivery systems, with a focus on developing the optimal user experience that best delivers the intended message.
I studied Information Design through San Francisco State University's Multimedia Studies Program, and I hold a Certificate in Book Publishing from UC Berkeley's Extension Program, as well as a degree in entertainment management from the University of the Pacific, one of the few programs of its kind available in the U.S.
My publishing background and training include copy writing, copyediting, content development, and project management in comic books and graphic novels.
My entertainment law, management, and production experience results from a misspent youth in theatre projects, rock n' roll productions, studio engineering, and local band bookings and management.
