A NEW YORK BASED UX DESIGNER
People watching is my favorite hobby.
The “why’ of behavior excites me. UX to me is constantly seeking out the why.
Communicating the user story and the embedded pain points energizes me to build and then advocate for designs. My first career was occupational therapy where I modified physical spaces to enhance accessibility. More recently, my skills as a communicator and storyteller were fine-tuned by an MFA in creative writing. I have a diverse background, but the thread between each role is a love for the human condition and exploring ways to improve it.
