I'm doing the 100 days of Daily UI challenge! Check it out on my Dribbble page.
UX design is a melting pot of my loves—creativity, empathy, technology, and organization. I've worked in the software world for the last 6 years in varying capacities but always with the user as the priority. I recently graduated from DesignLab's UX Academy where I immersed myself in the wonderful world of user experience for a year, and now I am working as a freelance UX designer.
1987: I was born to two nerdy, loving aerospace engineers.
2009: I graduated from Harvey Mudd College with a Bachelor of Science degree in biomedical engineering and a humanities concentration in anthropology.
2009 - 2010: I spent my first year and half software testing, product managing, and doing user experience research in the development department of a document management software company.
2010 - 2015: I switched departments and worked directly with our users designing software solutions for them as a business analyst, PMP-certified project manager, and solutions engineer. I graduated from Udacity's Front End Web Development bootcamp.
2015 - 2016: I found my calling cultivating my visual and interaction design skills with classes and side projects while contracting as a product manager for a startup. I graduated from Designlab's UX Academy in June 2016.
When I'm not designing, reading about design, watching TED talks, or coding, I might be:
surfing, soccer-ing, or yoga-ing
creating punny cards on my Etsy shop
pretending to be a photographer
playing guitar with my gal pals
writing about books, habits, and life
Lastly, a quote from one of my favorite television shows about the importance of human relationships and why a good user experience can make all the difference:
"People will never be replaced by machines. In the end, life and business are about human connections. And computers are about trying to murder you in a lake. And to me, the choice is easy." - Michael Scott
