Hi, I'm David (he/his/they). I'm always up for adventure and tackling new and challenging problems. I seek to eliminate pain and bring joy to product design, iterating and finding ways to improve along the way. I love studying the built environment, information architecture, and exploring new spaces.
I first started learning about UX as a software developer at NSF International, where I noticed how challenging it was to create software that is easy to use, and talking directly to customers and clients. I knew there had to be a better way to improve our product - and found user experience research and design during the journey.
As long as I can remember I've created products to tackle challenges in my community and backyard. I found user centered product design as the sweet spot between sociology, public impact, and human-centered empathetic design and storytelling.
Conducting qualitative and quantitative user research, synthesizing, and presenting key findings and recommendations.
Persistently meeting with all stakeholders and setting priorities, goals, and roadmaps as a team.
Creating low, medium, and high fidelity prototypes and getting feedback along the way.
Sharing roadmaps, organizing standups, estimations, and grooming meetings to collaborate and overcommunicate remotely.
Analyzing complex data and find hidden and important insights, then displaying that information in a way that is easy to understand.
API Development, Python, R, Big Data, Tableau, Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence, Java, Statistical Analysis, and more.
