Hi There! My name is Doug Havens and I am a user experience designer based in San Francisco, California. I am detail oriented with a passion for marrying usability and aesthetics. In my 8 years of working in corporate, startup, and agency environments, I have developed a keen eye for effective design, excellent communication skills, a highly organized work ethic and gained a wealth of technical skills. I am a hybrid designer that is equally savvy with visual design as I am with coding. I handcode all of my HTML/CSS (semantic, standards-compliant, with cross-browser expertise), and I am at an expert level.
