Process

I adapt my UX design process to the needs of each project I work on, but usually follow the order: planning/discovery, research, analysis, design and testing/validation. I utilize different methods and deliverables in each phase to suit the needs of the project.

Skills

Research

I conduct research exercises including guerrilla user research, surveys, heuristic markup and user personas.

Wireframes

I create quick UI sketches to brainstorm ideas, as well as fully annotated wireframes.

UX Flows

I produce task or user flows to visualize the sequence of actions taken towards completing a goal.

Prototypes

I create paper and digital prototypes to test interaction design solutions.

Testing

I facilitate different forms of product testing including usability testing or A/B testing.

Visual Design

I design fully rendered interface designs for implementation.

About Me

I strive to clearly define usability problems and collaboratively seek efficient design solutions with stakeholders and developers. With visual design skills, I have explored user interface design patterns for web, Android and iOS platforms when designing for eCommerce, SaaS and marketing projects. I am a big champion for accessibility and understand practical and technical considerations in user interface strategy and implementation. I enjoy facilitating communication from within an organization.
