I'm Dan ,
 thanks for stopping by.

I'm always glad to talk about the projects that I've worked on and am currently involved with. If you'd like to learn more about the work I've done, please contact me via email, or use the form below (they both go to the same place).

And if you would like to learn more about how I got into UX Design and Research, you are on the right page: just keep scrolling. 


How I got started in UX Design and Research

I got my start in UX Design and Research as a Philosophy professor. Strange, right? But it's true. Philosophy taught me the value of exploring problem spaces to accurately define problems. Teaching drove home the value of user research and user-centered design: understanding my students and their goals so I could create lessons for them.

Through a series of serendipitous encounters, I learned that what I enjoyed about teaching was, effectively, the role of a UX Researcher and Designer. And the more I learned about UX, the more I saw it as the right fit for me. Before too long, I ended up as a UX Designer at AF CyberWorx.

What I've been working on 

Currently I'm a UX Designer for AF CyberWorx. CyberWorx tackles problems across the Air Force and DoD, which has given me the opportunity to work on a broad range of problems.

The problems I've been able to help solve encompass communication networks and devices, wayfinding and navigation, object detection and augmented reality (AR), workforce/manpower management, personnel recovery, and data QA.

What I'm curious about

I'm interested in how to leverage technology and psychology to encourage beneficial human behavior. For me, human-centered design is an opportunity to create something beneficial for the user by understanding what they're trying to do, how they perceive the world, and what's getting in their way.
