A strategist and researcher with a strong grounding in data analysis. I am passionate about listening to users, UX documentation, thinking through data, urbanism, American music, and playgrounds.
I always start by listening to users, learning about how they work, and use a design-thinking approach. I specialize in user research, content strategy, and UX documentation.
Struggling to put process into words? Do you need someone to come in and create a message? I articulate pain points and uncover patterns, documenting the user experience for your team. I can embed on any UX team and document the work processes.
I've written across genres, from legislative analyses to popular music scholarship to business process documentation. Last semester I blogged about learning how to use GIS, which you can read below in my portfolio.
