How did you get involved in user experience design?
Mainly through my internship here at GSK.
What's your speciality and is that your favorite part of user experience design?
I'm still learning but currently, my specialty is creating the visual design for web pages and applications.
What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced as a user experience designer?
Finding the best compromise between the client's goals, ease of use, and what looks good.
What is one product that has been your crowning achievement and why?
The project I'm most proud of so far is a computer mouse design that adjusts to accommodate a range of hand sizes. It also encourages the user's wrist and forearm to be in a neutral posture.
What's one of your favorite designs (of any kind)? One of your least favorite?
favorite design: the OXO Good Grips kitchen tools line.
least favorite: Hummers - They may be well designed, but they're not meant for the road. They're overkill.
What do you do when you're not dreaming about how to improve all of the world's broken products?
When I'm not at school or work, I'm painting, playing guitar, spending time with friends, or reading.
