Michael Kenneth Brooks

Designer, problem solver, and design leader.

I’m a hands-on design leader, great at leading small teams, a skilled design coach, and humble mentor.

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.

Currently I'm 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. I've also 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).
