Hi, I’m Renae

People watching is my favorite hobby

The Professional

  • I love a round table of ideas
  • User first, brand second
  • Teamwork is my favorite work
  • I am a lifelong learner

The Out of Office

  • I sailed from Australia to Burma
  • I surf in summer and snowboard in winter
  • I performed spoken word poetry around NYC

UX and ME

The “why” of behavior excites me.

I consider the whole ecosystem, not just the moment of interaction. Before UX, I worked as a editor and copywriter for two years and an Occupational Therapist for eight years. Human behavour intrigues me and solving problems is a reflex that is honed by almost a decade as a human centered professional.

A Masters in Creative Writing gave me the skills and confidence to tell stories focused on realistic human interactions and emotions.
