As a User Experience and Product Design Leader my work focuses on establishing an Agile-based design process employing research methodologies, interaction design and prototyping. In managing teams, I facilitate business innovation workshops and conduct research that helps companies identify the right strategies while also mentoring designers through processes that streamline efficiency and maximize output. I lead teams with humanity, transparency and empowerment.
As a local design leader, I manage teams throughout Los Angeles and cofounded NELAUX, a local organization with 2,000 members fostering the Northeast LA UX community, where I regularly speak at events and conferences.

“Jon is the very model of a modern UX designer — user-centric in his worldview, collaborative in his approach and agile in the day-to-day chaos of a startup. He casts a wide net in his analysis of the problems to be solved while remaining rigorous in the application of the tools of UX design to drive toward finding solutions to the user’s problems. He’s able to challenge assumptions in a way that leads to more elegant, and often simpler, solutions but keeps his eye on the horizon.”

“Jon consistently delights regardless of the level of difficulty of the project, but is particularly inspiring when devising design strategy and vision under the most demanding circumstances. Some of my favorite moments of collaborating with Jon came during the most physically and mentally grueling endeavors we’ve pursued together. He is an indispensable partner for anyone looking to define and execute true human centered innovations in design, products, and services.”
