Seeking employment as UX Manager/Director – With over 12 years of professional experience, I am skilled in designing software and products that significantly impact the user experience needs of customers. I value critical-thinking, informed design rationale, and thoughtful questioning of digital experiences that surround us. My background includes multiple design disciplines and a Masters Degree in HCI – thus providing a practical and theoretical understanding of what it means to both design and communicate strategic UX solutions for today's makers of technology.
I believe that user-experience design is more than an artifact or deliverable of "customer thinking". It is an inclusive process that promotes risk-taking and accountability. Understanding people, culture, and the human experience is necessary to designing and driving UX value within organizations. Additionally, creating a UX culture within a company is paramount in bridging the gap between technology and people.
I feel empowered to help the designers on my team grow and learn – becoming better designers and contributing to the success of our products. As we become more fluent in understanding our customers and their needs, we are able to promote cultural and environmental change within our company – thereby furthering the value of UX.
