I believe in design that provides value to users, organizations, and the community.
I am a UX Researcher/Designer at Luther Consulting, which offers web-based software for collecting, analyzing, and reporting public health data.
Previously, I was a visiting faculty member at the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing where I helped create and support the Informatics Diversity-Enhanced Workforce (iDEW) program, a community partnership focused on increasing the number and diversity of high school students that pursue degrees and careers in technology.
I co-created iDEW's Computing By Design project-based curriculum for high school computer science courses. These projects are currently taught in 8 high schools across central Indiana that primarily serve low-income 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 and a content developer for a K-12 educational assessment company.
I live in Indianapolis with my talented wife Carrie Wild and our beloved cat.
