Hi, I'm Bryan. I design experiences.
I work at IBM as an Experience Designer and got my masters degree in Experience Design from the VCU Brandcenter.
Since there is always another guy named Bryan in every class or office I've been in, I usually go my nickname, bemorte.
I love Experience Design (Product Design, UX Design, UI Design, and Strategic Design).
I spent most of my life being a nerd, but only recently discovered how to use my inner geek to make useful things. I graduated in Creative Advertising from Brigham Young University, where I specialized in Creative Technology doing work for real clients in the BYU ad-lab. During my undergraduate years, I worked as a genius at the Apple Retail Store, where I discovered and nurtured my love for User-Centered software design. I graduated in the VCU Brandcenter masters program in Experience Design in 2016, and took a job designing for IBMix shortly after.
I employ empathy based design processes to create new and disruptive services and applications, and helping convince brands to adopt these approaches when they create for their customers.
Deliverable Experience: Mockups, Wireframes, Persona, User Journey, Functional Specs, Assumption Mapping, Motion Based Prototypes, Static Mockups, Keynote Decks, Videos, UX Documentation, and Decks.
Tools of Choice: Principle, Keynote, Final Cut Pro, Sketch, Pixelmator, Paper by 53, Adobe CS, Facebook's Origami.
I love all good movies and a fair amount of mediocre ones as well. My friends would describe me as an Apple Fanboy, and a diehard BYU fan. I live in Concord, CA with my wife of three years, and our dog, Link. I am a published author in the BYU Pre-Law Review (2011) and I currently co-host a monthly comedy podcast called Happy Valley Podcast.
