UX Engineer

Developing experiences that make an impact

I'm a New York based UX engineer, developing impactful software experiences.

UX engineer typically implies a designer who codes—and that's an accurate description. I built and maintain a UI component library, re-wrote the core CSS architecture, and built a new landing page for the New Visions Portal.

But more precisely, a UX engineer is someone who applies engineering problem-solving to holistically solve complex interaction problems. The New Visions dashboard framework, and the Noom food logging workflow are just two examples of tackling tough problems through analysis and creative problem solving.

I'm at the intersection of design and engineering, with an education in Systems Design Engineering and experience in UX since 2013. I approach problems holistically, design complete solutions, and execute them efficiently.
