Something unique about you summed up in one sentence
I first got into UX after participating in an eye-tracking study in college.
Your favorite part of working at Bold Insight
The people! Work is so much more enjoyable when you like the folks you work with.
In your spare time you would absolutely do this:
Summer: Ride my bicycle around a new town and find geocaches
Winter: Hide in my basement and work on my Lego city
How long have you been in the UX field?
You cannot start the day without doing this…
Giving my dog head scratches and a belly rub. Better than a cup of coffee (although coffee is a close second).
Your ultimate celebrity dinner party guest list would include:
Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, John O’Hurley, and Steve Harvey. And our dinner conversation topic would be how great Family Feud is.
Long-term personal or professional goal?
I would like to eventually have executed fieldwork on every continent. I’m currently at four continents (North and South America, Asia, and Europe). Australia and Africa shouldn’t be too difficult if the right project comes along…. Antarctica is a bit of a stretch-goal.
Any other facts to share?
I believe it is morally wrong for people to reheat pizza in a microwave. Please please please use an oven (conventional or toaster). Only you can prevent soggy crusts.
