My UX education and career began in 1989 at Apple Computer. In 1992 I founded Rocket Communications, a company focused exclusively on the design and creation of User Experiences for software and applications. I have lived in Honolulu for over ten years and commute to San Francisco an average of one week a month to work with my team and our clients. I thrive on working with smart, creative enthusiastic people. When I'm not working I enjoy being outdoors, having fun with my spouse and our kids.
After chatting at lunch it struck me that you and Viil Lid have a lot of common interests. She is also a UI person and she speaks fluent Italian :-) Viil started the User Experience group where we have an interesting discussion going regarding the iPhone's use of the drag gesture.
I would love to meet up to talk about GUIs. Perhaps we can start a GUI meetup. I'll post something up on the forum. I was very impressed by your presentation and was happy to learn that there are world-class Internet pros right here in Honolulu.
Hi Michal Anne, it was great to hear your brief talk yesterday about GUI design. What a lively discussion afterwards! I was hoping the discussion would lean more toward GUI design principles rather than the development methodology between teams. But it was interesting nonetheless. Aloha, Truman Leung
