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. 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.
If you’re a recruiter reading this, please don’t contact me for long-term UX positions. It’s time for me to transition from that career into something else. Not exactly sure what that is yet (and open to suggestions); I do 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 believe that we have the ability to influence reality (whatever that is), and that by focusing our time and energy and resources we can move mountains. Change the world with me?
