My Story
HOW DID I GET INTO DESIGN?

After graduating from BYU, I started my career in CX consulting at PwC.  Shortly thereafter, I pivoted to UX after being hired internally at PwC's R&D tech lab, where I designed internal apps and received valuable mentorship.

After my time in the lab, I joined as a junior designer at DeNovo, a product built by PwC's FinTech group. While there, I grew my 'design chops' and learned the basics of product design while designing a product from the ground up. 

In 2017, I joined PwC's Analytics Apps team as a senior designer where I've been able to help manage PwC's design system language. Additionally, I began moonlighting for a few startups for fun.

WHAT'S MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?

It all starts with RESEARCH. Quantitative research allows me to know what has happened, and the qualitative provides the why.  To design the most optimal solution, I first seek to understand the problem. After defining the problem, I rapidly iterate on design solutions.

When designing, I always...

  • Clarify the goals of business stakeholders AND the users -- Ask the seemingly dumb questions.
  • Validate designs with users as quickly as possible -- Same day validation is best!
  • Seek feedback early and often -- Let the stakeholders weigh-in before high-fidelity.
  • Drop biases -- We all got 'em, but be aware and work to reduce them.
