I am Samual Moreau and am the Director of User Experience Design and Research. I have been at Microsoft since 2006 and previously worked on Windows 7. Before joining Microsoft, I was at a number of web companies in silicon valley. For Windows 8, my team works on most of the UI across the product as well as Windows live and Internet Explorer. In my free time, I have a beautiful wife and 2 kids and we enjoy family time, art, playing and watching sports, and occasionally boating when the sun decides to visit us in Seattle.
