A little about me
I am a UX professional with more than 10 years of experience in software development.
I have worked as a software developer, UX designer, and, most recently, as a UX manager. I have worked in both waterfall and agile environments. I have been in agency and product settings, and am comfortable with both. I enjoy working across the full spectrum of UX design, research, and analytics.

Google Analytics & Tag Manager, MySQL BI DB
I also enjoy biking and have a collection of nearly 100 board games.
