My name is Chaunce ‘Red’ Dolan and I am a UX Designer.
I began my Web career back in 2004 starting with some simple freelance work. In the end of 2004 I landed my first professional gig at a financial service marketing company. Within a couple years I had honed my skills and became more focused on user interface (UI) design. I had attended a few different conferences on design and usability, thus beginning to develop my passion for user experience (UX) design.
In 2010, I was hired by competitor company and given more responsibility and freedom to develop greater user experiences. All the while, I was continuing to develop my taste for great UX.
In the summer of 2013, I was hired on with Accruent as a UX Architect which later was retitled to Principal UX Designer. I built the UX team and process at Accruent from the ground up, while actively involved on many high level projects and priorities all the while teaching Accruent what UX was and why it was valuable to them.
In the spring of 2016, I was hired on at VMware as a Staff UX Designer and have had the pleasure of working on some exciting and valuable projects.
I am actively involved with the Austin UX community, blog about UX, and speak on UX topics. Needless to say, UX is a huge part of my life. I have been happy to see many organizations become more aware of the value of UX and seeing it invested in more and more.
