I help simplify complex websites by using UX research tools such as Treejacking to improve sitemaps and navigation.

  • UX planning & strategy, product roadmaps, and communicating trade-offs through research: I help product teams determine the value of design features through prioritization techniques, research, case studies, and customer interviews. Alongside stakeholders, I help strategize design approaches with clear business and product objectives in mind.

  • Trained in building Bubble.io Apps: I understand how the bubble app builder works, I am able to produce designs directly into the tool, bypassing the need for design-to-dev handover.
