My name is Ken. I currently reside in Rego Park with my wife, however I feel my heart belongs to Brooklyn (my nan still lives there).
I am co-founder of the CardStack Foundation building a catalog of design patterns and open source tools for Card based UI design. I am Principal of Liquid New York, a User Experience design consultancy where the customers happiness is the number one metric.
I have over 15 years experience in interactive creative direction and user experience design, including concept development, information architecture, interaction design, and user interface design. A full stack creative with a diverse background working across different industries with a unique understanding of the entire life cycle of design, technical, marketing, and sales processes. My work on global interactive properties have been seen by hundreds of millions of users – including on the acclaimed Answers.com and the US Open Tennis Championships. I have been continually recognized by the Webby Awards, W3 Awards, Web Marketing Association, and published in industry press. I am also a judge for the Webby’s as part of the International Academy of Arts and Sciences.
For the past 7 years I served as Creative Director to lead strategy, style and overall user experience, execute on and oversee visual design for the USTA Online Network, including the national network of sites, E-commerce, US Open Series, USOpen.org, and USTA partners.
