Design

> 15 years experience in designing software and UX with 3 years in management and > 7 years in leadership.

As a designer I enjoy playing with the elements of design: form, shape, texture, color, space, movement... it's all fun. Behavioral psychology and human centered design are fascinating.

About Brandon

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

❤ī¸đŸŽ¨ I love design and development. 📖📚 I value knowledge. 🕹ī¸đŸŽŽ Video games are my primary recreation. 🌲🐈 Plants and animals make me happy. ⌨ī¸âŒ¨ī¸ I build custom keyboards.

  • The phrase "intent vs impact" is of high importance to me.
  • I prefer the frank and direct approach and won't take it personally, but I understand and empathize that others might not like the direct approach.
  • I operate in a judgement-free zone.
  • Let's document things! Documentation benefits everyone.
  • My background in architecture adds a unique behavioral psychology element to my designs.
