I currently work for IBM Design on Bluemix, our cloud computing platform. My work includes conducting user research and creating designs that will lead to great user experiences.

 SpeakEasy is the result of a research and design project in which I investigated the pervasive fear of public speaking and ways to improve. Methods include interviews, ethnographic research, cognitive walkthrough, Wizard of Oz prototyping.

 Ozone House is a local non-profit that provides services for at-risk youth. I'm designing an interactive story that will help their visitors understand and empathize with the youth who have to face difficult decisions everyday. The interactive story puts users in the shoes of one of these teens and shows what life is really like.

 AAA Life Insurance Company was looking for help getting a new product off the ground. I helped with interaction design. I sketched, I wireframed, and I eventually build an interactive prototype for user testing. I helped run the user testing and used the feedback to make adjustments to the design.

 With Nutshell, I applied a whole suite of UX research methods in order to help Nutshell find out how well they meet user needs. Nutshell worked great for most users, but not as well one of Nutshell's largest user semgents.  Interviews, surveys, heursitic evaluation, and usability testing were some of the methods I used.
