UX design @ Principal Financial Group

I get into some interesting projects and niches. Things like:

  • Iterative experience design, from brainstorming, concepts and research, to prototyping, refining and implementing.
  • Web analytics work, finding meaning in dense information.
  • A/B testing and conversion rate optimization. This is new stuff at Principal, and I’m excited to help push it forward.
  • Lots of presenting ideas, coordinating, and project management.
