I am an Independent UX researcher and consultant based in New Orleans. My recent projects have been working on Expert Reviews and Usability Testing for a museum, research center and publisher. Along with working on a retail catalog import project for a local start-up company in New Orleans.
What’s been your favourite moment as an IA (so far)?
As an Independent Contractor and Consultant I get to work on varied projects. One of my favorite projects was working on the IA for ‘Instructions for Use’ at a biotechnology company. I was excited to work on a project that was non-digital and critical for user safety. I’ve always enjoyed the more challenging projects which is what attracts me to IA. Also, the IA community is very welcoming and friendly which makes the IA Conference both educational and fun.
What made you decide to volunteer for IAC?
I love the IA Community and can’t wait to share my hometown of New Orleans with everyone.
What does the theme mean to you – what are you hoping to see, hear, sense or share in New Orleans?
New Orleans is definitely not a city lacking in appealing to the senses. Whether it’s the music or food. Or the perceived sensation the river gives you as it rushes into the Gulf of Mexico. It’s an exuberant city with a lot to offer. Stories of old and new. Stories of humility and hope. Stories of people who want to enjoy life to its fullest in a type of sensory overload celebration. Hopefully, I’ll be able to help share not just my version of New Orleans, but an emotional connection to create storytelling memories for years to come for everyone involved.
