I am never satisfied with "this is how we do it, and how we've been doing it for years." Throughout my career, I have tried my best to improve things I came across; updated Photoshop "recipes," streamlined cataloging processes, added scripting to make forms more legible and visually appealing, cleaned up "good enoughs," and saved lots of wasted time and money.
I am good at finding the things that should be fixed. Let me learn and work with you, and see what we can fix along the way.
I have had a love of UX before I knew the term, and I want to make things people can use easily and as prescribed. I've learned not to get an ego, and iterate, iterate, iterate.
I love making things, and enjoy working with spec or directly with clients. Creativity is something that I feel flowing through all aspects of my life.
Whether coding up a personal app idea or grinding out some server side logic, I've come to love learning how to make ideas a digital reality.
AccessAble is aimed at helping individuals with disabilities gain easier access to concert tickets. Using the practices of modern day UX, I named and framed the problem, discovered my users and created personas to focus my problem statement, journey mapped their situations, mocked up, and iterated, iterated, iterated my suggestion/solution. This was a great learning experience and AccessAble is something that I plan to develop further, as I feel like a need could be filled and a population could be helped. (Read more on Wordpress)
For this exercise the front end portion of the class, we were tasked with creating a series of cards that react to user input. I really enjoyed this project as I got to stretch my legs a bit on some of the CSS and animations. I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out how to make the "3 dimensional" folder flap at the top. I did so with a second "invisible div" above the main content div. This allowed me to play around with the border bottom and create the desired effect. This project I totally went "down the rabbit hole" and just kept digging and digging for the result I wanted.
