My name is Sarah Hawk and I live in paradise (specifically Auckland, New Zealand). I am the mother of twins (just started school this week), an exercise addict and a professional enterprise community manager. When it comes to UX, I'm fairly green.
What UX means to me.
My background is in web development (I spent many years programming before turning my hand to community management 5 or so years ago) so for me, UX is about the way people use and experience websites. I have a hard time separating it from the concept of usability, although I know that that is just one part of it.
My Interest in UX.
Late last year I was excited to accept an offer from Matt and Luke to set up this new community from the ground up (every community manager's dream). I have worked for technology companies before and have an extensive knowledge of the web, but am learning about UX specifically as a result of landing this gig.
