Who even are you,
Noah?


Great question. I've honestly been working on this one myself. I'm a User Experience Designer. I grew up in Chicago and studied Human Centered Design in Seattle. I'm looking for my next project! I also do Improv (what's improv?), produce sketch comedy videos, run long distances, and listen at unreasonable volumes.

Why UX Design? I love learning about people; how people think, how they form goals and relationships with each other, what motivates them, what frustrates them, where they find joy -- it's interesting to me. Learning enough about a person to make something that makes their life better is a deeply fulfilling practice to me.

I'm looking to design technology with an awareness for the huge diversity of needs, thoughts, and values that exist in this world. And I look forward to learning and growing as a person along the way.
