About

I am a person who is remarkably growing my user experience design skills quickly and with vigor. I love that the field is so innovative. It provides me with much to think about. I have been a user experience generalist for several years, post-publication design, and am on a healthy path to hone certain skills such as interaction design, usability, and content strategy.

Sapient

Participated in various project teams as a general user experience designer in the discovery, design, and development phases of web application development. My area of expertise was visual design. The deliverables I developed individually and as a team included web style guides, mood boards, concept models, presentation and information graphics. I easily collaborated with information architects, user experience researchers and site developers to deliver client-ready solutions in an agile environment. I also worked in parallel with development teams including the following roles: Java developers, QA, PMs, Tech Directors, and stakeholders. In the development phase, I conducted rigorous screen reviews with developers, as well as participated in resolving any QA tickets regarding visual design, xhtml functionality, and section 508 compliance. Also gathered visual design requirements with stakeholders.
