Dan Zola

Dan Zola’s devotion to UX principles began nearly 20 years ago, as a key player in the MovieFone experience.

Since then, he’s developed digital products and lead teams across a variety of industries, ranging from healthcare to entertainment. Most notably, Dan has spent five years at MTV working to deepen the emotional connection with television viewers and digital users (ask him about his run-in with Justin Timberlake).

Dan then extended his expertise to the pharmaceutical industry, working to provide a smoother experience for patients who are taking a more active role in their healthcare in the digital space.

Dan is Managing Partner & Research Director of Sway UX, an award-winning a user experience research & design agency that creates websites and mobile apps with a focus on healthcare & technology. A graduate of University of Pennsylvania with a degree in English, Dan lives in Chapel Hill, NC with his wife and two children.
