GRAPHIC DESIGNER, ILLUSTRATOR, EDUCATOR, AND UX DESIGNER/RESEARCHER.
Yes, I am indeed a UX researcher. Despite all of the illustrations and design work prevalent on this site I have an MFA in Experience Design from Miami University specializing in design research and UX design.
My thesis may be found here if you are interested in my graduate work. My primary research focus has been on the attachment people have to physical objects over the digital equivalents. A shorter public research report may be found here.
I appreciate you taking the time to look at my work. I am very proud of everything I have accomplished in both my education and communication graphics/research design work.
