ABOUT ME
I'm a Product & UX designer with heavy front-end dev experience. I enjoy helping to solve the "visual" challenges created by designers who don't code as well as working with designers to help them discover other techniques to accomplish their goal. In the past I've taught classroom courses covering web technology, marketing and design theory. I want others to succeed and I'll work to make sure you understand the why, not just the how. My specialty is product strategy. I'd love to help you define solutions, understand users, make business decisions, test assumptions and make better products!
EXPERTISE
No icon Product design - 10 years experience
Before you write a line of code you should understand the problem you're solving, who benefits and why. I can help discover these things. I can guide you through testing your concept to creating specifications and helping you define success. I've advised startups and Fortune 100 product teams. Lets make your product a success!
No icon Ux design - 10 years experience
Its my passion to make products Useful, Usable & Beautiful. In the past I've helped both Fortune 100s and startups craft products that solve problems while being wonderful to use. I'm happy to review mockups/prototypes, propose features, assess wireframe fidelity and even suggest design patterns.
No icon Wireframing - 10 years experience
Wireframes are a key part of the information flow for any interactive project. I've been building these in varying fidelity for years using pen/paper, Omnigraffle and Axure. We can talk about everything from what content should be included to speeding up your workflow. I can help you with fidelity (and what that even means) as well as crafting questions to get you the best feedback.
Html css expert help HTML/CSS - 10 years experience
I remember writing HTML for IE3 when all layout required tables. Over the years I've embraced CSS and more recently mobile first and responsive design practices. I have lots of experience working with legacy browsers as well as building UI heavy interfaces for web apps. I push for using preprocessors like LESS to write faster and more efficient code and I experience with frameworks like Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation.
Javascript expert help JavaScript - 7 years experience
Flat pages are boring and apps need functionality. Javascript makes the internet go round so let's make your projects pop! The majority of my experience revolves around front-end interactions and interfaces. I can help you decide if you should write a feature from scratch or use a plug-in. I will suggest implementation and can help with some debugging.
No icon Photoshop - 20 years experience
I'm a long time Photoshop user and a member of the Adobe Beta test team. I've suggested web centric features for Photoshop (that have actually been shipped) and used Photoshop exclusively for UI design for many years. I can teach you the ins and outs of Photoshop, how to export content for the web and how to replicate a mockup with CSS. I also have extensive experience with the rest of the Adobe's Creative Suite (I've taught several of them in a classroom settings) and many other visual design applications. There are many options for image, video and illustration; the key is picking the right tool for the job.

Bryce is a cool guy! He's very knowledgeable about UX design and using Sketch. Helped me with ideas and foundations on design. Thanks! :D

Bryce was knowledgeable and helpful — and honest! That part is important for me. When learning a new skill, it's important to try and fail a few things (which we did together) until it works right. We even did some Google Fu to help us get there.
