I've beeen in and out of usability testing / information architecture for about 20 years now although it has only been full time for about six.

My background is in computer journalism which taught me how to take the user's view when talking to management and later helped set up some early websites in the days when Yahoo's indexing of everything by hand seemed like a sensible business model.

I love what I do and love the fact that every day I learn something new about UX/IA.

comment interstitial page regularity
Hi all, thanks for the feedback. Just to let you know that I actually did persuade the business that interstitials are a bad idea. My bank uses permanent interstitials before logging me in and it hacks me off. Thanks for additional ammo...:)
