I’ve been a UX designer for three years. I came to UX from a background of more than 20 years in graphic design and journalism. I’m an outstanding communicator, bringing together language and visual design to persuasively shape interactions.
Recently, I worked as a UX designer for RS21, a data science and visualization company, in Albuquerque, NM. My work there focused on creating intuitive, insightful solutions to deeply complex problems.
