I approach UX design from an "inside out" perspective. Utilizing proven qualitative research methods, I am able to discern use patterns and gain deeper insight into user goals. The work I do involves a variety of design skills - low-fidelity mock ups, interactive prototypes and wire framing. Another tool in my UX box is research. Research involves interviews with product owners and stakeholders, competitor audits, behavioral interviews with customers, and customer ethnographic field studies. Analysis provides the glue that holds the research and design components together during the feature, user story and acceptance criteria phases.
