Hi, I’m Anders Ramsay, and I am a UX Designer, Agile Coach, and Front-end Developer. Since designing and building my first commercial website for an imaging service bureau in the late ’90s, I have been an obsessive and passionate explorer of ways to make digital products fit more seamlessly into the analog world.
After completing a degree in Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Michigan School of Information in 1999, I worked at agencies, multi-nationals and startups, leading the design of consumer-facing websites and enterprise systems. Some of the companies I have worked with include AOL, CBS, Deutsche Bank, FOX , JP Morgan, McGraw-Hill, Lonely Planet, Sony Pictures, Turner Broadcasting, Viacom, and the City of New York.
I am highly active in the local UX Design and Developer Communities. I started my first Meetup group (the NYC IA Meetup) in 2003, and have since participated in organizing numerous retreats and conferences.
In recent years, my focus has been more on Agile Coaching and Software Development. I founded the Agile Experience Design Meetup in 2009, which has grown to include over 4,000 members and is hosted at the wonderful Pivotal Labs Offices in NYC. I also run a monthly Hack Night event and am a regular participant at NYC Hacker Hours, mentoring aspiring developers.
