How did you get started in UX?
I started my design career working for a biometric security startup based in Boston. During my time there, I got my first real UX experience working on an MFA app and quickly realized that I enjoyed the more complex problem solving that UX design offers.
What do you like about UX?
Growing up, I always enjoyed two subjects the most – math and art. One is very logical with only a single correct answer while the other is very open-ended. UX ties these two ways of thinking to build logical systems but also leaves room for creativity to bring new ideas to market.
How did you get started in cybersecurity?
I got started in cybersecurity as soon as I took my first design job. Working with biometric security, I was able to truly learn the meaning of usable security and the importance both usability and accessibility had in the success of the product.
What do you like about cybersecurity?
I started in cybersecurity because I think it is more interesting to design for technically complex products. I enjoy the challenge of understanding the technical background, customer needs, and then figuring out how to create a solution that makes it easy to use and understand.
What’s your favorite Food?
My mom makes the best homemade pasta sauce and eggplant parmesan – both family recipes.
What made you apply to Axio?
As a usable security UX practitioner, Axio’s value proposition is very interesting. Helping organizations understand their risk by leveraging compelling designs to fill the socio-technical gap is an intriguing problem to solve.
Do you have a pet?
I have two corgis, Willow and Wollie. They occasionally supervise Zoom calls.
