Hello, I am Zack! Originally from Madison, WI and currently living in Denver, CO. I began my career in UX/UI at a very early age of 17, when I taught myself how to create websites in high school. Since then, I have excelled in the UX/UI field throughout college and life.
I’ve worked with large and small companies: Transamerica, SlingTV, Aetna, Pepsi Cola, Widen, and Clean Lakes Alliance. Creating successful applications and software that positively impacts millions of people everyday (I know this through research and validation testing).
I’m certified in UX through the prestigious Nielsen Norman Group (N/n G) and specialize in complex application design. Additionally, I have experience in mobile and web, android and iOS application design.
Currently, I am a Design Lead working with the Air Force on design systems and rapid response projects. Previously, at Aetna my team and I worked on an intelligent behavior change application, and also worked to improve the search experience. I believe user centered design principles, along with a11y, lead to longevity in products and businesses. I champion for the user everyday.
My strengths are helping define goals, create & push forward roadmaps, organize work into feasible pieces, generate wireframes, user flows, interactive prototypes, and create visual design guidelines. Additionally, I specialize in designing experiences for behavior change such as healthy living, fitness, and mental health.
