I'm a software engineer focusing on user interface development. I have a strong personal interest in usability and UX design. One of my favorite quotes is from Jef Raskin: "To the customer, the user interface is the software". Sound engineering is a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for a great user experience—great design is also necessary.
I'm currently a Senior Front End Engineer at CrowdStrike. I've previously worked at Optimizely, Slalom _build, IBM, and Lowe's.
In 2015 I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Master of Science in Information Science, concentrating in Human-Computer Interaction. Before graduate school, I worked for several years as a web developer.
- I am a Certified Usability Analyst, Trusted Tester, and Web Accessibility Specialist.
- I have code on GitHub and CodePen.
- I occasionally answer questions on the StackExchange network (StackOverflow and UX).
- And I write about various technology and design topics here on my blog.
