Darren Maurio

Director of User Experience Delivery, NPR

Darren Maurio became NPR's Director of User Experience Delivery in May 2006 after working with the organization as a consultant since August 2005. He created the team responsible for Web project management, visual & interaction design, usability analysis, web metrics and user engagement product strategy for NPR's digital products and services. Prior to joining NPR, Darren spent seven years as Director of Development at Boston interactive agency BigBad. In that role, he led the development of marketing and e-commerce Web sites as well as workflow and content management applications for a variety of commercial and non-profit clients including the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, MIT, Harvard Business School, Saucony, New England Biolabs, Legal Sea Foods, Copyright Clearance Center and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. In 1999, Darren founded BigBad's first User Experience team to incorporate the emerging fields of information architecture and usability analysis into client engagements (and better products for users!). As a member of the management team, Darren also played a key role in establishing systems and processes for effective project tracking, resource allocation and portfolio management. Darren holds a degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University where he performed an extensive usability study on (of all things) car radios.
