I'm a design lead and
A User Experience Designer
My 11-year design journey comes across mobile, web, and desktop apps on both consumer-facing and enterprise product categories, plus graphic design on print materials.
I am currently leading a small design team at a construction software startup Rhumbix and taking charge of all aspects of the design function — from user research, information architecture, interaction, visual, prototype, usability evaluation, to usage data analysis, on both product and marketing.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I worked along side Thor on several projects at Citrix. Of all the designers I have worked with, he has stood out as the easiest with whom to collaborate. He is very talented, but keeps an open mind to all ideas. I always felt like he was listening.
I learned many skills from working with Thor. The ones that stand out the most involve presenting abstract ideas and data in an understandable and meaningful way. He has a real knack for researching and visualizing complex ideas.
I knew I could always trust Thor to deliver his obligation to a project on time and always exceed expectations. He's an awesome designer and a favorite coworker. His talent inspires you to be better, but he'll never make it feel competitive. I give him my highest recommendation.
I had the pleasure of having Thor as a designer on my team at Citrix, he is an exceptional multi-disciplinary design talent, with an incredible work ethic and above all real pleasure to work with.
During our time working together Thor worked hard to continually build his skills, build strong cross-functional work partnerships and was always willing to undertake broader responsibilities in order to grow. Some of our strategic design projects began with an exploratory nature, which is where Thor’s willingness to embrace ambiguity, deeply understand customer problems and our underlying technologies helped him to build credibility with everyone he worked with. On several occasions I asked Thor to lead design projects, one particular highlight was a challenging project which spanned multiple product groups, seeking to audit existing product experiences and look for opportunities to unify our design approaches, Thor willingly accepted the accountability and lead team of UX and Visual designers from across the company and multiple geographies to collaborate and share ideas to drive toward validated recommendations and a more unified customer experience.
New product innovation also played a significant part in Thor’s contribution at Citrix, he was a co-founder the of Cubefree, a product recognized and further developed through the three month long Citrix Innovators Program, where only three teams of self driven intrepreneurs from across the company, alongside external startup companies were selected and coached to find market fit for their ideas. The Innovators Program was fully immersive experience with expert mentorship in Lean Startup and Design Thinking methodologies to accelerate learning and actively invalidate personal assumptions.
Overall I feel privileged to have had Thor as part of my team, watch him grow professionally and his passion for innovation and ability to execute means I would never hesitate to work together again.
Aren't you curious where designer's ideas come from? ;)
