I am an expert in the area of user centered product development and human computer interface design.  I received a BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and an MA from the Ohio State University both in Industrial Design.  I have worked professionally for consulting and corporate design offices since 1988 and in 1999 started my private practice IDWorks LLC. In 2006 I accepted a faculty position at the University of Cincinnati’s Industrial Design Program.  Here I specialize in health and wellness and design entrepreneurialism. I am a strong advocate of interdisciplinary collaboration and actively work with the faculty and students from the College of Nursing, Business and several private entities. My areas of expertise include health and wellness, virtual business strategies, and entrepreneurialism.
