He passionately champions UX—from great content to keynote strategy—for the annual MIX conference. In his past life, Nishant has worked at Amazon.com on products like Unbox and Kindle, collaborated with top-notch design agencies, taught courses at Purdue University, and written a book or two (http://amzn.com/0766829103). He lives in Kirkland, WA with his wife, two cats, and notorious Weimaraner, Yoshi (http://twitter.com/yoweim). In his free time you can find him playing the guitar, reading, flicking through RSS feeds on his phone, or indulging trashy television viewing habits. His personal web site is http://rainypixels.com.
