I’m a career UX Designer/Project Manager. I like to solve complex problems by truly connecting with people, asking hard questions, finding the Most Optimal Solution for everyone involved (wherever possible), planning things, and getting shit done. Breaking and remaking systems. Paradigm shifts. Shifting perspectives. UNDERSTANDING a thing, and figuring out how to approach the problem in a way that works well for everyone. We all have a common ground, we just need to find it – look for the lowest common denominator.
If you’re a recruiter reading this, please only contact me for positions helping with climate change in some form or another. While UX has been the bulk of my professional experience, I also really, REALLY like talking with people – including public speaking. And I’m stupidly passionate about helping save the world. Always have been. I’d also be open to project management, activism, event planning, you name it. I can do any number of things and generally learn pretty quickly (though I do have some health and family challenges and will need a somewhat flexible schedule, please). And gosh darn it, people generally like me.
… I live life out loud. I leap and yell, “catch me!” – without knowing that someone or something will be there to do so. I’ve just always been that way. I’ve got a lot going on at any given point in time, and yet I constantly feel like I’m not doing enough. Go figure.
I believe that we have the ability to influence reality (whatever that is), and that by working together and focusing our time, energy, and resources, we can move mountains. Change the world with me?
