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. (LinkedIn has more)

I have a freshly kindled desire to work with organizations who respectfully relate to people and natural systems with awareness and care.
