Hi there!

My name is Jess and I am an experience designer. I have been working in the tech startup world in New York for six years (and counting!). I am into researching, designing, prototyping, and developing both software and real world experiences to drive human behavior. I like working with data, research, and systems to solve complex problems.

Recently attended the Recurse Center where I improved my engineering skills and became a better programmer. I also participated in Delta.nyc, where I helped develop brand strategy for the Foundation for New York’s Strongest.

Before that I graduated from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at Tisch NYU where we used human centered design, research, and testing to explore the limits of the recently possible.

Less recently I was on the education team at MongoDB. I managed training operations, I also created personas for the MongoDB University platform, designed an updated user flow for process automation, and conducted user testing.

A while ago, I worked as the community manager at Turntable.fm. While there I advocated for the user and community in product meetings, developed the company voice, and designed the rules that governed the community.

Want to work together or maybe just chat? Say hello.
