    about me

about me

Hello, I'm Julie! I am a friendly UX Designer with a master's degree in Interaction Design and 6 years of experience designing interactive products. I am fascinated by people and how technology can support even the most technophobic among us. Incurably curious and a natural communicator, I love discerning patterns in user data, designing better experiences for users, and prototyping and designing iteratively.

I just completed my master’s in Human-Computer Interaction Design at City University of London. Before going back to school to hone my web and digital design skills, I designed and built physical and digital products in the sports and medical sectors (see my PullSmart and Physio-Control projects). These experiences gave me a curiosity about the users of my products and a desire to focus solely on UX design. I am currently designing intuitive user interfaces for Tecolote Research in the great Seattle area.

what i do

user research

Getting to know users however possible: observations, surveys, interviews... NOTE: I don't actually use binoculars. That would be creepy.

interaction design

Wireframes, user flows, customer journey maps...let's make the product better! How? Iterate, iterate, iterate.


From paper to animated simulations, my favorite way to test out a real experience with the design is to make a prototype!

usability evaluation

How do I know if my design actually made things better? Watching people struggle with poorly-designed technology is painful but enlightening.
