Work samples:


Amber first stumbled upon user experience in 2006, long before it became the cool kid on the block. Since then, she's become a devout student and teacher of all things UX, particularly for non-designer types.


The world of technology has changed a lot since Amber discovered programming in her first BASIC class.  But having moved from BASIC to Pascal, C/C++, Java, JSP, Perl, VBA, HTML, C#, JavaScript and CSS, the underlying excitement remains the same: creating something from nothing.

Amber currently holds a Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) designation.
