When I originally entered college, I was an English major, dead set on a career in the publishing industry. I love storytelling and writing, however, when I learned and researched more about UX design through working on a consulting project for a nonprofit, I found a perfect fit.
I love user experience design because it combines everything I am passionate about (technology, art, and the human mind) and my skillset (critical thinking, storytelling, and creative problem solving).
Beyond my love for UX, I am also an avid reader, a writer, and an artist. If I'm not designing a wireframe, studying for a cog sci midterm, or working on research/deliverable, you'll find me watching a horror movie, painting the sky, or drinking an unhealthy amount of black tea. Or possibly all three at once.
