I work on communications, marketing and branding across all of UXPA's projects and initiatives. My focus for 2013 is on harmonizing our international branding and to provide useful communications to our members worldwide.
Director of Events, Treasurer

My focus for 2013 will be on expanding and improving UXPA's events program to meet the needs of our membership and the larger UX community.

UXPA wants to build synergies with other organizations, both those very directly related to user experience and those that are only tangentially related. Let's talk about how we can more closely align our organizations to better enhance knowledge and increase opportunities for collaboration.
Director of Membership & Volunteers
Managing Partner, Primitive Spark, Inc.
As your Director of Membership & Volunteers, my goal is to provide you with the greatest possible sense of participation and value from your membership in UXPA. I welcome your ideas for how we can better serve the needs of UX professionals in your community and worldwide.
Director of Strategic Projects
Founder and SEO Director, Omni Marketing Interactive
Findability is a critical part of the user experience (UX). People can't use what they can't find. And what's the point of finding desired information if you can't use or understand it. My goal for the UXPA is to ensure desired information is findable, usable, accessible, desirable...all facets of the user experience?

2013 will bring new professional development opportunities. We’ll
