Often, user experience responsibilities are isolated to specific product and design teams. However, user perception of quality hinges on every engineer, designer, researcher, and product manager coming together to build the best outcomes. 

I approach design strategy from a place of respect and mutual understanding of everyone's role in creating the end product: the user experience.

I see the renewed interest in user experience as something to be nurtured and valued. I spend time mentoring junior designers and evangelizing the value of usability and cross-disciplinary definitions of experience.
