I have worked on many fun and interesting professional and personal projects. Here are a few of my favorites:

I am currently seeking a position in the realm of designer, design technologist, or interaction designer and would love to talk about how I might fit into your organization.

Seaker - Verify Your Identity 2I am taking classes towards a User-Centered Design Certificate in the University of Washington’s Human Centered Design and Engineering department, delving into User Experience (UX) from my normal position as a designer or design technologist. In the first class my team created the project at right: a social media app focused on the trust and security of the interactions. It was very useful to look at our survey and interview data while thinking about how to satisfy those users best in our design and prototype process.

I have worked on technology art of my own creation and I’ve worked to help artists bring technology into their own projects. I’ve worked on an extremely large interactive physical art project with a large team, I’ve worked on interactive and multimedia focused projects in a collaborative design department, and I’ve also worked on smaller projects with one or two other people. I love collaboration and getting to throw ideas back and forth, and getting to take a deep dive into a task or problem to come up with a solution.

I am always paying attention to fit and finish in both physical and virtual environments. I am always watching how people interact with objects and interfaces and thinking about the ways a design could be tweaked to reduce friction or pain points in an interaction or thinking of novel ways the task could be accomplished.
