" Rarely do technical skill and strong design sensibility reside in the same person. Working with Dariane is the exception that proves this rule. From her fast, reliable work ethic to her intuitive navigation sense and strong creative input, Dariane was a pleasure to work with. We expect to continue to rely on EyeArchitect as our web-based needs expand with our business."
- Matthew Weatherley-White, Restwise

Dariane has consulted on information management and Internet issues for the Sarawak Forest Department in Sarawak, Malaysia (Borneo), where she worked with the technical staff one summer to help them conceptualize, implement and manage their web activities. This was a follow-up to a 4 month sabbatical she took to do a research project on the feeding behavior of Orangutans at the Semengoh Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Sarawak, Malaysia. Her interest in using scientific visualization to impact our understanding of the physical world was inspired by her work in Sarawak. She has also worked in such diverse disciplines as marketing, new business development, and database design for Donovan and Green, International Design & Advertising and Christopher Vincent, Inc.
