Ethically conscious, silly, critical, earnest.
I'm looking at the bigger picture, through traveler's eyes. I've spent a lot of time in unfamiliar places, and it's taught me to challenge my perspectives and never assume. I've gotten good at translating between worlds and asking the right questions.
But why UX? I'm eternally grateful for how much I've benefitted from the good design in my life. For me, design is an opportunity to give back — to translate the benefits I've received into positive experiences for others. It's another way to educate, share, and communicate.
