Hi Paula,

I make design web applications for customers to use to complete a variety of tasks such as purchasing items and generating reports for inventory and billing statements. After spending years learning how to anticipate the needs of the consumer in hospitality, I have been able to bring that knowledge with me to my designs. I know what individuals are looking for when they are buying and how best to present a product to them.

I make my pages as easy to navigate as possible but include as much information about a product as possible. I have been successful using this model.

My communication style was molded in hospitality as well. I use a relaxed conversation style that draws out the most truthful version of a person. This I believe, allows me to truly find out what would best suit a business user or customer when I’m building.
