Art Director, UX Designer

Spire Digital, Sept 2012 – Sept 2016

As a lead in the design department I worked to streamline agile processes and prototype deliverables, strengthen communication with product owners, project managers, developers and clients, manage roadmaps and expectations, eliminate waste, and encourage team collaboration and accountability.

In practice, I produced digital products in both a UX capacity (user research, persona mapping, wireframing, developing prototypes & user testing) and a UI capacity (custom interface design, digital style guides, rapid prototyping & quality assurance). I also helped develop a design lab client service, implementing Google’s ‘Design Sprint’ to solve business problems in record time. During our transition to agile I also received SCRUM Master certification.
