User experience designer with over 10 years of digital experience. I've helped Fortune 500 companies build successful programs and platforms by solving unique business challenges through innovation, design, and technology. I cut my teeth in creative tech at O'Reilly Media, where I celebrated hacking, tweaking, and bending technology. More recently I co-founded Project Noah, which was recognized by the World Summit as an award-winning mobile app for learning and education. We've been backed by National Geographic and featured by the WSJ, BBC, CNN, NYT, PBS, Reuters, Economist, Wired, Mashable, Fred Wilson, Clay Shirky, and many more. Over the years, I've also worked with News Corp., Aol, BlackBerry, Virgin, TD Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Bell, Rogers, National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, National Wildlife Federation, and various other organizations.

Ian Chalmers | Creative Director, Pivot Design Group

Peter effectively used client user research to develop high-level wireframes (user design specifications) that reflected perfectly the feedback our clients gave us. The end result far exceeded my expectations. Peter demonstrated a deep understanding of our clients and took the time to learn about our program and existing website. I would definitely recommend Peter for future work.

Elaine Jin, MBA, PMP | Senior Project Manager, Royal Bank of Canada

Peter's commitment to his work and passion for cutting edge technology help keep our team invigorated and aware of this ever changing landscape. He understands the challenge of creating great designs that meet user needs and works diligently at achieving both.
