Prior to becoming a user experience designer I had 13 years career experience as a researcher on the trading floor, a business analyst, a project manager and I've also worked in clinical settings.
After reading Jakob Nielsen’s Designing Web Usability in 2000 I knew my interests and skills fitted perfectly with HCI. To prepare for this career change I studied anthropology, psychology and HCI. I have also published original psychology research in a peer reviewed scientific journal, this has now been widely cited. I'm currently a user experience designer at TheGrandUnion.com in London
Although I take a user centred design approach to a project I also understand the importance of business goals, stakeholders with their own opinions and technical constraints when considering solutions.
