Noam Morrissey

UX defender & guardian of the Groove

I consider myself a Designer, first & foremost. I am passionate about user experience & interaction design, committed to creating clear, usable, attractive work, and strive constantly to improve my skills and to share my knowledge through my blog www.alfonsomorcuende.com and through www.sazerac.es (a UX cocktail with a Southern twist). I have strong project management, communication, & presentation skills and experience leading & motivating design teams.
