I grew up in Brookline, MA. In high school we had what was called the “Unified Arts” Building where all the electives took place. I wanted to live there—drawing, ceramics, painting, design, animation, auto tech, wood working… I spent as much time there as I could, and developed a deep appreciation for creation.
I got into user experience, through my friend Suzi. She introduced me to the field on an exploratory interview. She was working in the UX department at Fidelity. At the time, I had just graduated from BC with degrees in Finance and Painting. She gave me a chance, and since then I have learned to put purpose to my love for creation: improving the lives of others (staring with the experience of saving and investing, but who knows what’s next?)
I continue to paint, draw, and write on the side, and I’m teaching myself to pick a guitar.
