I’m James Chittenden. I’ve been on both sides of the fence working in both the design and development community as an interaction designer…so I’ve done design for a while now. I work for Microsoft focusing mostly on government customers – talking about why UX Matters along with the cool stuff we’re coming out in UX technologies. Prior to joining Microsoft, I worked with several Dallas-based design agencies as well as consulting firms such as Accenture, focusing on delivering rich interactive systems across a wide variety of industries. I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Dallas as well as a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Colorado Tech.
