Been listening a lot to Grandaddy's 90s stuff lately. It's gotta be some of the best mixed music ever.
Interaction Designer, Design Strategist, and HCI Professor with more than two decades’ experience in crafting beautiful and usable digital experiences
I specialize in building, leading, and coaching multidisciplinary, high-performing creative teams. I'm an Experience Design Director at McKinsey & Company, helping to establish and lead digital experience design as a global capability at Digital McKinsey.
In all my work, whether in industry or academia, I passionately champion the building of human-technology experiences that are both beautiful, elegant, and usable. I employ human-centered interaction design strategies, practices, and skills to create new forms of engaging and humane interactions between humans, technologies, and environments.
I've also had a career-long affiliation with the Department of Informatics at Umeå University (1998 to 2016), where I served as a full professor of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). With my academic hat on, I've authored 80+ academic papers published in leading international journals and conferences—some fairly well known, cited, and frequently used in teaching internationally: e.g. 1, 2, 3, and 4.
I've given 50+ invited keynotes, seminars, and talks for a wide variety of audiences on a surprisingly number of topics. Contact me about speaking engagements.
During the night shift, I’m an accomplished guitar hero (well...)
