About Dan Cooney

I honed my IA, UX, research, strategy and consulting skills for the last 10 years as a lead information architect with The Understanding Group. Earlier I was Director of UX for an e-commerce firm and I taught a class on system and service evaluation for University of Michigan's School of Information. (see LinkedIn for more)

I want to make information systems that help people think clearly, keep control of their precious attention and do good in the world.

I have witnessed my work improve the effectiveness of the companies I help. In this way I realize I'm participating in how society evolves and relates with our planet.

I now focus on serving organizations that intentionally relate to natural systems and people with care and respect.
