Hi, I'm Sam.
User Experience Research + Product Design
MS Clinical Psychology
I am a User Experience Researcher + Designer based in New York City.
I was most recently a UX Designer at NYCgo.com. Before working in product design I was a community mental health therapist in Portland, OR.
Therapist turned UX designer, I bring my empathic and person-centered approach to my passion of creating delightful user experiences. My training in Gestalt therapy enables my unique ability to conceptualize user behaviors and motivations, as well as my ability to quickly connect with users on a human level. I have extensive experience conducting and analyzing qualitative and quantitative research which informs my creative, resourceful approach to problem solving. When I am not planning out a research initiative or conducting a user interview, I am either exploring NYC on my bike or looking up new ramen spots to check out.
