Skills that pay the bills
I enjoy researching and using design to come up with new ideas and solutions to problems. I love thinking through use cases, testing them out and then communicating a user’s journey. UX design allows me to bridge the gap between technology and people.
I’ve always been attracted to puzzles and figuring out how things work. One of the most satisfying aspects of being a developer is seeing my code deployed in a live system and used by actual people, especially if it improves their lives in some way.
I believe in data + creative, not data vs creative. I find the most success when the two inform each other. My most effective and impactful work has been open to change and creative evolution, while still being transparent and measurable.
