About Nishant

As the Creative Director of MIX Online, Nishant enjoys wearing multiple hats—content strategist, information architect, UI designer, product strategist, writer, speaker, and occasional developer. He passionately champions that mushy thing called User Experience—from great content to keynote strategy—for the annual MIX conference.

In his past life, Nishant worked at on products like Unbox and Kindle, collaborated with top-notch design agencies, taught courses at Purdue University, and wrote a book or two.

Nishant lives in Kirkland, WA with his wife, two cats, and notorious Weimaraner, Yoshi. 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.
