Hello! My name is Robert.
I am a User Experience Specialist at Toyota Motor North America. I previously worked at ProQuest, the University of California, and the Ford Motor company. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan where I specialized in human–computer interaction (HCI).
I possesses a sensitivity to both the art and science of design which is reflected in my creative approach to work. I subscribe to Steve Jobs’ philosophy that, “it is technology married with liberal arts, married with humanities that yield results and make our hearts sing!”
