During my academic and professional experiences, I have had the opportunity to wear many hats in the application development process. These exposures have taught me that UX research is where my passion lies, and they have also given me the ability to communicate effectively with team members of varying skill sets.
Outside of work, I try to enjoy as many hobbies and adventures as time allows. I am married to a nature-loving biologist who brings balance to my sometimes overwhelmingly geeky lifestyle. I tinker with Raspberry Pi projects, maintain a 3D printer, “collect” board games, and paint fantasy-themed miniatures. My wife and I recently moved back to the USA after living on the Mediterranean Coast of Spain for a year. Needless to say, life is always busy and seldom boring.
