Creative Direction + Design
 

Oh hi there. I’m Stephanie. I work in UX and digital products. I've had a lot of different titles that mean different things to different people. But I cut my teeth delivering large scale enterprise design experiences in the early aughts.

My Experience

Early on in my career I decided to try several flavors of design before finding out digital design is the flavor that made sense to me. As a result I have a breadth of experiences, some weird and some once in a life time. I've been on the in-house side of rolling out a brand for a large Healthcare system. I've been involved in several large, complex experience design roll outs. I've also helped repair a big bird while interning at the Jim Henson Company.

The one constant in my multidisciplinary experience has been that I don't stop at the idea.

Ideas are easy.
Getting ideas to market is the hard part.
