(VAN-dee-ker-KOV )

With a storied career in UX/UI design leadership, I elevate the brand experience, whether working within an agency, consulting firm, or large in-house creative team. My concepts and strategies address stated (and uncovered) needs. I create prototypes and deliver pitches that effectively showcase concepts.

UX is a constantly changing field. I embrace this rapid pace and stay up-to-date on design methodologies, principles, accessibility, UX/UI best practices, and mobile-first design trends so I can consistently deliver personalized, data-driven, user-centric experiences.

As an Experience Design Leader, my teams appreciate my clear direction, collaboration, problem-solving, and my ability to dive into the creative process. I actively listen, ask questions, and remain flexible to clients' needs to create the best products possible.

When I'm not designing, I like attending live music events, shopping for vintage vinyl records, building decks, starting fires, taking naps in my backyard hammock, making guacamole, enjoying bacon, and β€” most importantly β€” being a cool dad.
