Hello, my name is Emily. I am a product designer with a mixed background of HCI, communication design and entrepreneurship. I desire to craft user experiences that are useful and delightful for people. I believe that great product design solutions come from deep empathy of the users, solid understanding of the problem, acknowledging the technical constraints and business objectives, iterating based on user feedback, and intentional decision making.
I am well versed with every part of the product development cycle as I have worked for startups in various stages and sizes for the past four years. I have the ability to take on hard problems, develop creative solutions, and see a project through end-to-end. I have a solid understanding of user-centered design principles, careful attention to detail, and be able to contribute to product vision. I spend my day at work asking questions that starts with how/why/what if, and advocating for user-centered design.
I thrive in a fast-paced environment. I am attracted to products and projects that stretch me, require growth and have an impact.
