Writing

I’ve had the opportunity to contribute my thoughts on this and on other websites. I’ve included example links below to give you a better idea of what I’m saying and where I’m saying it!

“What an eye opener, holy cow! You should consider writing a book about this issue, because I bet a lot of us are feeling a divide in our brains with SO MUCH information about how things should supposedly be.”

Keeping It Real About UX Blog

Keeping It Real About UX Blog
This blog is really what started it all for me. I started Keeping It Real About UX back in 2007 to share my thoughts and observations about my work and the industry I work in with the rest of the community (and anyone who would listen, really). After years of consistently posting new ideas and topics, I found I wasn’t able to keep up with it as I once did. That’s ok though, because I still put new thoughts there now and again. Even better, I keep the older thoughts around in case you missed them!
