I am setting up this blog because I need a place to post my practice in UX, and design in general, in order to invite others for their feedback. I also want a place to put myself out there for potential partners or employers to get to know me and how I think.
I am a woman in my late thirties who just finished a Bachelors in Business Information Systems from Ashford University earlier in 2016. Since I finished school, I feel I’ve been rediscovering myself. I made a career change last year, and am now in my company’s IT department as a Business Analyst.
I feel like I clawed and scraped my way up this sheer cliff, and now that I’m up here, I’ve discovered a lush, green Lost Land that needs to be thoroughly explored. I’m finding new opportunities I never knew existed before, and my compass has been firmly pointing in the direction of Interaction design, and User Experience design.
My blog posts will fit under four sections:
- Book reviews
- UX Practice
Other than interaction design, I will also be exploring visual communication, graphic design, and web development. I feel these are all components of UX in one way or another. I feel my strength is coming from a business analysis point of view at the moment, but by exploring in these different directions, I can expand my understanding. Maybe I will find a strength I didn’t know I had!
