I create valuable experiences

I believe in creating experiences that provide value to stakeholders at all levels:  from our users and clients to our company and community.

I am a UX Researcher/Designer at Luther Consulting. We develop web-based software used to collect, manage, analyze, and report public health data. Our mission is to help public health organizations improve health outcomes and advance health equity.

Recently, I've returned to graduate school to study data science in order to expand my knowledge and skills in data analysis and visualization, as a complement to my expertise in UX research and design.

Previously, I was a visiting faculty member at the Indiana University Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering where I helped build and support the Informatics Diversity-Enhanced Workforce (iDEW) program, a community partnership focused on increasing the number and diversity of Indiana students that pursue degrees and careers in technology.

I co-created iDEW's Computing By Design project-based curricula for high school computer science courses. These projects are taught in numerous high schools across Indiana that primarily serve low-income students and minority students. In 2018, our iDEW team received the TechPoint Mira Award for Tech Educator of the Year.

I have also been a high school science teacher for a large public school district and a science content developer for a K-12 assessment company.

I live in Indianapolis, Indiana, with my talented wife, Carrie Wild, who is a professional artist.
