Before UX

Before I heard about UX, I spent over 3 years working as a print journalist and editor for my undergraduate student newspaper. I also interned at Atlanta's ABC-affiliate TV news station, WSB-TV. During this time I exercised my passion for writing and storytelling. I have perfected the art of interviewing by conducting over 100 independent, semi-structured, interviews on a diverse group of people. Additionally, I wrote over 30 articles over the course of my 3 and a half years with my undergraduate campus newspaper. Journalism has helped ground my approach to user experience as a storyteller first, and a designer/writer second.
