personal statement

Designing interface is an interaction between user and developer. Two things drew me to software development - the abstraction of writing code and the challenge of presenting that abstraction to human beings in a way they can understand. When I first started studying human interaction with products, objects and particularly software interfaces, I noticed people often believed they were dumb when they did not understand an interface. However, rather than fix the problem, the industry standardized interfaces which lacked the ability to engage most users. The industry attempted to fix the user, rather than the interface.

People are organic. Computers are not. So the work of making software interfaces more understandable, practical, and enjoyable became something I wanted to do. Software development is my connection to serving people. People are more important than things. Perhaps my message will be communicated in the interfaces I create, the code I write, and the feedback, training and team-work I offer to other developers.

I enjoy working with WPF and UI development so much, Infragistics found me and hired me. At Infragistics I work directly with customers to help them solve their technical WPF and Silverlight issues, I provide training as a fellow engineer, and I work to improve our Services to our customers and our community.
