Oh, hey! 👋 Nice to meet you.
I'm gonna tell you a little about myself.
I'm a Human Factors Psychologist.
In 2017, I earned a PhD in Human Factors Psychology from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. Human Factors is basically the practice of designing technology and systems based on an understanding how the human brain works.
I'm a UX consultant.
I cofounded Kennason LLC in Troy, NY in 2015. We are a User Experience (UX) consulting company, meaning we conduct user research to help companies design more "human" products. We have worked within tech startups, healthcare, education, and the New York State government. Our kicks come from innovation and social good.
I'm a writer, speaker, & volunteer.
I am a coordinator for AlbanyUX, a professional meetup for local UX enthusiasts, and I am the Sponsorship Director for the Upstate New York chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design. I also enjoy giving talks and workshops locally and at conferences around the country, sharing things I've learned about Human Factors, UX, and entrepreneurship.
