All About Me

Hi, I’m Alyssa. I am an Arizona native and a recent grad new to the Bay Area. A lot of people have notions about what being a UX designer really is. Being a UX designer goes beyond just creating a user interface. For me, being a UX designer is enhancing every step in the consumer’s process through design, usability, and function. I liken it to advanced customer service. You have to anticipate what the user will want to do, what problems they may have, and how to get rid of them before they even happen.

I have always been a fixer. Whenever someone was having issues I would go out of my way to help them. This really influenced the career choices I have made because I want to predict and resolve issues before they can inconvenience someone. I want all products I touch to be useful, usable, and desirable.
