Don’t be shy. Say hello.

Hello! I’m Dana, a UX designer and researcher based in Atlanta, GA. I approach problem solving with creativity, curiosity, and an empathic attention to detail to produce data-driven design solutions for real humans.

I recently completed a Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction from DePaul University. Prior to beginning grad school, I spent over 10 years as a marketing and content strategist for a wide range of companies. Turns out all that time spent trying to understand why people click on things, how to tell a story, and how to efficiently deliver useful content was a pretty decent precursor for a career in user experience design and research.

In my free time, I enjoy film photography, browsing thrift shops, making art, hiking, and fantasizing about adopting too many shelter dogs.
