Hi. I'm Jessica, a user experience (UX) researcher and designer based in Berlin.

 

I believe technology can drive meaningful change when design is evidence-based, human-centered, and inclusive.

ABOUT ME
 
I'm a critical thinker, lifelong learner, unrelenting optimist, and trained social scientist (FWIW) on perpetual quest for deeper understanding.

As an academic-turned-UX researcher and designer, I'm equipped with an eye for detail, data, and accuracy. As a design thinker and former marketer, I execute and communicate insights, strategies, and creative concepts that meet user and organizational needs. And, as a world traveller, I offer unbridled adaptability, flexibility, and empathy.

When not at work, you'll find me practicing yoga, pilates, and meditation, hut-to-hut hiking, reading fiction, studying up on human behavior, binging podcasts, or cooking. Based in Berlin, Germany, I've lived in New York, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, New Delhi, and Copenhagen. I'm originally from Richmond, VA, USA. 

 

If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be a toasted (sorry!) everything bagel with cream cheese, lox, red onion, and capers.
