Why I Chose UX For a Career
Products that lead a user to make errors and waste time are a failure on the part of the team that developed them. Understanding your users, their expectations and their usage environment is critical.
I enjoy working in collaborative efforts with product managers, developers, designers and writers to conceive, design and develop high-quality products. The feeling when you deliver something new that users need and that makes their lives easier is worth the effort.
While virtually any UX task can help understand the user, in this case, I'm talking about work early in the product conceptualization and design process. I'm highlighting only more recent work.
