Understanding the different ways people experience their world fascinates me. As a usability designer, I enjoy being able to improve those interactions. I enjoy all aspects of the design field, from high-fidelity prototyping to visual storytelling. However, my favorite part is actually strategic: Learning the goals of the project, understanding my audience, exploring solutions, and translating stakeholder feedback are the moments when I feel that the design-thinking adds the most value to a product. I’m particularly interested in analytics-based design and working with mission-driven organizations.
When I’m not designing, I enjoy playing with other people’s cats, running the South Street Seaport, cooking foods that glorify the poached egg, and photography… ok basically instagramming.
