ux researcher & strategist
I currently work for Clutch, an agency in Columbus, Ohio. My focus is in discovery and generative projects that set the course for long-term success. My clients have primarily been in the financial services sector, but I've also done work for real estate and retail clients.
I believe that good research is, at its core, about openness — openness to what others have to offer, openness to more fearless ideas, openness to embracing complexity and uncertainty. It's a kind of intellectual humility, the ability to accept new insights and adapt our viewpoints while still exercising judgment.
That's what I enjoy most in the process of research and design, using the principle of openness to bring people together — stakeholders, designers, users — to bridge siloes, challenge each other, and build new possibilities.
I can't share my work publicly because of NDAs, but if you're interested in learning more about what I've done, feel free to reach out via email or LinkedIn; I have some password-protected portfolio pieces I can share upon request.
