About Me

EXPERIENCE DESIGN

It was 1994, and I found myself completely inspired by the immense possibilities the Internet represented. I could create and publish instantly, to a global audience! More personally, staying in touch with loved ones overseas became so much easier.

With Mosaic, the world’s first browser, a Mac Quadra 605, a 9600 Baud modem, Fetch – a Mac-based FTP tool, and an early version of BBedit, I embarked on the journey of Internet publishing.  Two months later, the early version of Conscious Shell came to life, hosted by a small Dallas ISP called pic.net.

With studies in Political Philosophy, the path to experience design has been more natural than one would think.  Both Design and Systems Thinking require critical thinking skills, as well as a more formal ability to both understand and empathize with world views that aren’t your own.

It’s been more than two decades, and in that time, through trial and error, I’ve worked on every level of experience design.  From initial market and consumer research, to user acceptance testing and analytics, there’s no stage I’m not familiar with.

Why Work With Me

FULL STACK EXPERIENCE DESIGNER

After more than two decades of work within the experience design realm, I’ve had a chance to work on an extremely diverse set of projects, products and teams. I understand every step of the creation process, and can fully empathize with the challenges and opportunities in every step.

“Micah is one of the most detail oriented UX designers I’ve worked with. He has an excellent sense of gestalt, and is very cognizant about the human experience as related to interactive media. It is so rare to find a designer who cares about observing how people interact with things, and capable of translating those observations into creative solutions. Micah thinks through so many facets of the design problems presented to him such that it is difficult to find any gaps left in his work. When a critique is presented to him he takes it in the most professional and mature fashion I have ever witnessed. As creative director I was confident that Micah would listen closely to all my critiques and respond with a highly creative solution.”

Arie Stavchansky, Founder, CEO of Dataclay

“Micah not only made my job easier here at The Richards Group, he made me a smarter person in the digital space as a result. Through his work, he continues to be a personal inspiration to have more focus in the world of digital communication. Micah is incredibly smart, a buttoned-up presenter, ahead of the curve of almost all digital trends and consistently works to help drive our client’s business. It’s hard to find a team member that brings a perfect blend of strategy, experience and creativity to the table – Micah delivers on all of that and more.”
