"I articulate research and data to connect products to people, and represent the voice of the user."

 

About Me

Over the past decade, I have connected my knowledge of product and industry standards back to the user's experience of online shopping as a Product Developer and Technical Designer. 


I completed my undergrad with a focus in Design studies and left school intent on translating high-level designs towards a broader audience with empathy. I spent time at a variety of high-end brands focused on product experience and understanding of shopping habits. It was through the merge of Tech and Fashion I've found a way to pair my love for research and product knowledge directly to the online experience.  

Working as a Technical Designer provided a great opportunity to focus exclusively on the prototyping, research, and feedback process and ensured I was heading in the right direction. I have always had a passion for the testing process, as getting direct feedback from a variety of customers allowed me to focus my time on analyzing customer feedback, writing surveys, reviewing factory notes, research, and building prototypes. 

I decided to enroll at General Assembly to better understand the wireframing process, and take a hard look at all the intricacies of UX. I'm excited to be on this journey, and I invite you to check out some of my work.
