My academic background in psychology has trained me to take a thorough, methodical approach to research, leaving no stone unturned. I am excellent at finding and working with appropriate secondary research, and have strong interviewing and usability testing skills.
Colors, letterforms, and interfaces have fascinated me since I was small. I have a keen eye for composition, and textile work and classical music training have honed my ability to design for every sense. My varied background and skills allow me to fit well in any design team.
I love the logical nature of development. I know enough code to talk to developers in their own language, and have developed a few things myself, too. Programming has allowed me to integrate technology into my own interests, through applications and physical computing.
I am the dreaded Post-It Monster, and I'm coming for your projects. My background in writing and music has given me insight into a lot of ways that people form ideas, and I'm great at inspiring creativity in others.
I always get excited when it's time to prototype. Whether I'm working in paper, foam, mobile, or HTML, I bring a lot of passion to the process of creation and iteration.
How does using this product make you feel? I have worked in human-centered research for years, and have a solid background in experimental design, ethics, and statistics. Your data is in good hands.
I'm something of an odd duck, and I like it that way. I hope you do too. When I'm not on my quest to become a UX unicorn, I'm singing opera in the shower, knitting/crocheting/embroidering, playing video games, or swimming some laps. If you want to know more about me and what I can do for you, get in contact with me and I'll get back to you as soon as I'm able. I am currently based in Seattle, WA.
