User Experience Designer
I believe that a great design only takes you so far. It gets people in the door. In order to keep them there you need to do more. You need to understand psychology and cater designs around human instincts. You need to understand the user so well that you can predict what they will do next and design an experience that satisfies that. I employ these principals in every project I lead.
