General Assembly

Graduate, User Experience Design Immersive
Los Angeles, CA, USA

While I had been practicing user experience since 2011, in those days, UX/UI was still an emerging field, often collapsed with and/or confused with graphic design. I completed the 10 week User Experience Design Immersive course at General Assembly to verify my practices, hone and broaden my skills and establish a professional network within the field. All of these goals were accomplished successfully and I completed the course in February of 2015.
