Hello,I'm Richard

Product Designer and Design Leader

I'm a Product Designer, specializing in User Experience (UX) and Interaction Design (IxD) with a firm grasp of Visual and User Interface Design. I'm currently designing products at the software development consultancy Pivotal Labs, where I help advocate and inject thoughtful design into Agile development. I revel in the design process and love collaborating with smart folks to deliver great products that are useful and delightful.

In addition to design, I have a passion for new technologies, learning, and discovery. In my spare time, you can find me at shows (I'm a huge music fan), making things in code, or chaperoning my dog (she's a party animal).

Some Projects I'm Proud of

Working with Nissan and in collaboration with NASA, our team worked to create the future of autonomous mobility. The project leveraged Mars rover technology to allow new instructions to be provided to Autonomous Vehicles in trouble. This new information would then be shared out to the network of vehicles, training them all - a major step forward in self driving vehicles. The work premiered as CES 2017. See More Info

Iconic motorcycle company, Harley Davidson, approached us with a task: how can we use technology to increase rider engagement and "get more butt on bikes". Incorporating Lean Startup methods, we explored multiple paths forward to craft an app that users found useful and delightful. Available By Request
