I’m a product problem expert grounded in the long term vision. My favorite products to design are machine learning based enterprise solutions.
I view myself as a user advocate above all else, vetting every decision to ensure the integrity of a relevant, adoptable solution. I prioritize solutions to user pain with strategic and tactical responses that benefit both product managers and agile development teams. I am intentional about leveraging my empathy and leadership qualities for efficient and energizing communication with internal stakeholders - from engineers to executive management.
Beyond my day to day, I enjoy synthesizing my experiences into writing to contribute to the online product design community. Outside of work, I love road tripping to remote areas and am currently DIYing a camper van conversion.
Transparency into the job hunting method I created. November of 2016, I decided to transition out of freelance user experience design. During my job hunt, I collected my favorite questions and wrote thoughtful and exhaustive answers, creating a list of frequently asked questions.
User testing and usability studies are as important on day one as they are when you have millions of users. When your internal resources are virtually non-existent, you still have a few great ways to understand your target audience and start testing how they’ll relate to your young idea.
