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.
[B]What UX means to me[/B].
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.
[B]My Interest in UX[/B].
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.
