Me

Let Me Introduce Myself.

I'm Josh,
A product design manager based
in Nashville, Tn.

As an interaction and user experience advocate I help craft User Experiences that users love to come back to time and time again. I also work closely with product management, engineering and company leaders to successfully go from early stage product concepts to launch.

My work has been called "ground breaking",
"a breath of fresh air" and "perfectly simple".

I recently finished working at Amazon on the Instant Video service where we launched Amazon Video Direct. I'm currently at a stealth medical startup and consulting with the UXTriage.com process around the US.

Sr. UX Designer, Amazon.com

Helping content creators and visual storytellers reach millions of Amazon customers across hundreds of devices with the same distribution options and delivery quality available to major motion picture and television studios.

I worked as the Senior UX Designer. I met with indie filmmakers and content aggrigators to learn what kinds of tools and features they needed to be sucessful. I followed that up by working with the engineering teams doing domain modeling, then the front end devs doing component based UX design, along with extensive user studies and usabality testing.

Founder, Prerunr.com

Prerunr is a SASS I built as a place for indie filmmakers to get feedback during post production.

Creators can upload trailers, sneak peaks, and whole films. Users then fill out a survey answering questions the creators had.

Its built using a custom timeline that can add comments in context of spacific sceens, sounds, or even down to the an individual frame.

While building Prerunr I took on the responsibility of building the UX and workflows along with layout and UI work. I'm also the sole owner and run all business projections and planning.
