Hello there. I am happy to have found this excellent UX resource. To answer your questions …
Where in the world are you?
In the middle of the USA.
What stage of your career are you at?
I’m at the “no longer encumbered by the chains of student debt and self-doubt” phase of my career. Finally, I am free to do what I love and confident in what I have to offer.
What are you current challenges?
My current challenges are overcoming the feeling of smarminess inherent in “networking” and selling oneself and finding people and places that will value my experience, my client focus, and my eye for simplicity in design.
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
I am incredibly passionate about the field of UX and excited to discover that all the skills I’ve acquired over the years, that used to seem random, now have a home.
Cats or dogs?
Kittens and puppies
