About Me

I love a good problem to solve

My name is Damien Dalli and I'm an interdisciplinary UX and Product Design leader who loves solving problems – creating experiences so that people can meet their goals and businesses have success. Currently serving as, Group Director, User Experience at INNOCEAN USA – where I lead a diverse team of UX practitioners – and a member of the advisory board for the University of California Irvine (UCI) Customer Experience (CX) program.

Over the last 20+ years I have worked dynamically with a wide range of clients, including: Hyundai, Genesis Motors, KIA, LG's Signature Kitchen Suite, Nuance Communications' Notable Solutions (now KOFAX), Lincoln Financial, CANVAS Worldwide, Orange Label Advertising, D&K Engineering, numerous startups and more.

As a User Experience and Design Director, I have built and led multifaceted teams of UX, UI, Interaction Design, User Research and Front End Development – and have continued executing alongside them, with similar and complementary capabilities.

As a Co/Founder and Chief Product Officer (CPO) of startups (myLanguage / Vocre, Anything After), the fast-paced environment granted me tremendous learnings and new perspectives when creating, launching and marketing products, plus the opportunity to speak in multiple countries, to thousands of people, sharing associated thinking; while also being honored with such awards as, Audience Choice and Best Mobile App at TechCrunch Disrupt SF.

As a leader/manager, I help guide organizations to shift their efforts and priorities to be more customer-focused (user-centered) – having had success by integrating modern tools/platforms and thinking for better collaboration, rapid prototyping for testing, hand-off and integration, plus mitigating risk by introducing qualitative and quantitative research methods (such as usability testing and behavioral analysis) to better understand the consumer and validate design decisions.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife (best friend and high school sweetheart), two young sons, our dog; going hiking, watching movies, playing tennis, and more.
