Michael Kenneth Brooks

I am a designer, problem solver, design leader, and artist.

I'm a strong advocate of user-centered design. A user-centered approach is the best way to design great software, products, or any other thing used by humans.

I’m currently the Director of Platform User Experience and Design at Apervita, a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) startup that enables healthcare payers and providers to build, publish, and collaborate on healthcare applications and data.

Prior to that, I was an Associate Director of UX at Roundarch Isobar, a user-centered design and product consultancy to Fortune 500 companies. Before that, I started a couple of companies, worked as a user experience consultant, designer, and illustrator. Read the rest of my CV, or browse some work samples (password required).
