As a UX designer, I create the functionality, organization, and information hierarchy of many digital products, such as websites, mobile apps, digital devices, and other interactive things you might touch and click on.
Educated at both the University of Michigan and New York University, I use principles of human‑computer interaction, information and graphic design to create highly satisfying user experiences. (In other words, I work to design interfaces that aren’t annoying.)
At the School of Information, I studied information privacy, information seeking behavior, and evaluation methods. It was a foundation in human-computer interaction and information classification. At ITP I studied interactive technology, physical computing, media, art, and design. Performance and identity were recurring concepts in my projects. (The photo above is one example.)
In my spare time, I actively study modern web development and I frequently tinker around with code. Here’s a fun little site I made using HTML5 audio and animation, called Animal Sounds with HTML5. (Turn on your speakers.)
I also frequently attend meetups and cultural events. I write about those quite frequently.
