Human-Centered UX Designer and Artist
I am a lifelong artist, designer, and researcher, passionately committed to creating engaging and intuitive products, services, and experiences that just work for people.
My approach to UX puts collaboration, storytelling, iterative experimentation, and humanity together at the center it all. I see design as a conversation that we’re all in together. Each of us informs the work we do by bringing in our multiple, diverse perspectives to the table, and this ultimately elevates how we innovate together.
Humor, lightness, energy, and play can only make the work better, so I bring that into our daily design practice. We can do both. Having fun does not take away from how seriously devoted we are to creating valuable new experiences for people.
I am currently looking for Senior UX and Product Design opportunities to contribute to UX design excellence for products and teams. The work can be consultative or full-time and permanent. I fiercely advocate for a mutually optimal human experience through design transformation.
I also teach art, innovation, leadership and design across New England for a variety of learning institutions, including Brandeis University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and Endicott College.
Over the years — alongside his professional design career — lou has also interdependently pursued his own personal art and design projects that thematically focus on the human phenomena of laughter. Through this evolving body of interdisciplinary work — he continually conducts rich and extensive research into laughter, humor and the areas inbetween, exploring the dynamics behind what we might consider to be funny or not funny.
lou lives up on The North Shore of Massachusetts with his wife, their daughters and son, their adorable grandchildren, and their sweet and gentle greyhound Frank.
Lou holds an MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s Dynamic Media Institute, and a BA in Art from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
