I straddle the line between UX Researcher and Data Scientist, specializing in early-stage product analytics, research planning, and root cause analysis. I have a qualitative research toolset from my background in I/O Psychology and a wealth of practical experience with UX analysis and data engineering. If you need to cross the gap between quantitative and qualitative research, I'm available for hire.
If there’s something better to do with a life than finding interesting, delightful bits of knowledge and then sharing them with others,
I haven’t found it yet, and I’ve been looking.
My search has led me through psychology, technology, data, storycrafting, gaming, business, philosophy, and many more delightful passions I collect with my days. Now I have a delightfully broad, Red-Mage-ish skillset with depth in user experience design, data science, and research as a whole.
With entrepreneurial parents, my childhood chores were marketing collateral design, website creation, copywriting, data analysis in Excel, and folding a lot of brochures.
I studied behavioral psychology, perceptual neurophysics, and market research, while using data tools like Excel and SPSS.
sThen, because I'd been such a precosious little business leader, I got my MBA to boot.
Pro Tip I: Don't graduate in 2011.
Pro Tip II: Try on a bunch of hats, see what works.
I got to try market analysis, data architecture, systems administration, data engineering, and speech analytics, contributing to a lot of different teams.
I took a sabbatical after my mom died, and did some thinking. What I enjoyed most was sitting in a Starbucks and building foundation skills in Data Science, laying the groundwork for great work at HP and Cash App.
Tinkering with ML is fun, but my passion is making things that help people. Plus, I kept finding design solutions to ML problems! So, I took a turn towards UX Research.
