Hi, I’m Renae

People watching is my favorite hobby

Design Philosophy

The “why” of behavior excites me.

When writing product microcopy, I prioritize user research and consider the whole ecosystem, not just the moment of interaction. As a UX Writer, I see my self as the tour guide of any product experience. I use conversational language that embodies brand values to encourage users to achieve their goals efficiently and with a touch of delight.

My Background

I have a Masters in Creative Writing and completed a UX Design Immersive Bootcamp at General Assembly. I have worked in e-learning for the last two years and have aligned myself with educational products. Before UX, I worked as an editor and copywriter for 6 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.

The Professional

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

The Out of Office

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