I’m a user researcher, writer, and teacher, with a focus on qualitative research. I have been in the user research field for over 7 years now. My background is a mix of clinical/social psychology, Buddhism, and education. I incorporate all of these into my current practice. I absolutely love the field of user research, and the impact it can have on teams and organizations. More than that, I love teaching research to others.
My specialty is in conducting generative research, which allows you to deeply understand your users, and helps you enable teams to make better decisions. I believe user research can't only be taught through theory, but it is important to practice, so my lessons are primarily interactive and full of tangible activities.
