David Guido


With over 20 years in UX design, I bring a wide range of industry experience to the table that includes numerous large-scale projects in finance (Bank of America, Charles Schwab, JP Morgan Chase, Washington Mutual), supply and inventory management (co-founder of theSupplyChain.com), healthcare (UnitedHealth Group, Optum, Change Healthcare), telecommunications (GTE), factory analytics and automation (Siemens, Motorola), along with video surveillance and video game design.

My award winning and patented work often blurs the line between the physical and digital, which lends itself nicely to the emergence of technology in our daily lives. My ongoing studies include, but are not limited to, computer science, design, business, psychology, information architecture, and human-computer interaction. I call myself a designer as it's a nice umbrella term for the work that I do.

I consider myself to be extremely blessed because my 'job,' such as it is, simply entails doing what I love. Currently, I'm a Senior Director of Product Design at Optum, which is part of UnitedHealth Group (a Fortune 5 company) accelerating the journey toward improved lives and healthier communities. My passion is to analyze, design and implement innovative, user-centered solutions. I'm a critical thinker with a good design sense, a strong technical background, and an eye for making things better.

I have a genuine love for the outdoors and drag my beautiful wife, 3 kids, and the dog out to do as much camping and water sports as possible. I ride downhill mountain bikes, climb big mountains, and I have a passion for photography, architecture and typography. I used to play a lot of ultimate frisbee, shred the streets on a skateboard, and breakdance for Project 5 in Cleveland, Ohio.

And I can usually be found looming around these parts...
