Although he is a fresh face among the UX community, Andrew Zusman has made a splash. A man of many hats, Andrew is a writer, speaker, and designer. After careers as an historian focused on social and intellectual history and an author of several educational books, Andrew discovered user experience design and describes his attachment to the field as an addiction. Andrew studied experience design at Israel’s Netcraft Academy and has since worked as a user experience designer in Israel.
In 2013, Andrew published an article at UX Booth on accessibility and universal design focused on the typing obstacles for users who have dexterity related disabilities. The article was based on original research, and its success led to opportunities to speak at prestigious conferences across Europe including WebExpo Prague, UX Scotland, and UX Conference. The article and presentation also led to a nomination for a Design for Experience Award in the category of Accessibility.
In his free time, Andrew is an avid reader and enjoys playing board games. A native of Indiana in the United States, Andrew lives in Tel-Aviv with his wife Natasha and their dog Indy.
