My interest in user experience design started in college, during my cognitive science program. I learned about how people learn, think, and organize their mental models. After I graduated, I decided that the practical application of that knowledge was user experience design. I’m a self-taught designer, and learned by finding opportunities to design wherever I could.
Currently, I’m a designer at Facebook, working on the Events product. I was previously at 23andMe, a direct to consumer genetics testing company solving problems around health and genetics all while meeting various regulatory standards.
I enjoy the challenge of taking ambiguous problem and working with a team to define and find the solutions.
