Kevin Schumacher
Director, UX Magician at Walt Disney Company


I am fortunate to live in beautiful Seattle, Washington working as Principal UX Designer at The Walt Disney Company and I have been honored to direct workflow and front-end design for multiple company-wide projects and applications. I work with the world's best engineers and business analysts to produce novel design solutions that answer the question, "How can we make this experience more magical?"

My design experience is diverse and spans 3 years running my own design company, 7 years in the travel technology sector, building award-winning websites and applications, and nearly 5 years in the Media industry designing enterprise-level interfaces.

I currently serve on the board for Puget Sound World Usability Day in Seattle Washington and have previously served as Director of Big Design Latin America, Vice President of UXPA Ecuador, and Board of Technical Advisors at Brookhaven College in Texas.
