Hi there, I’m Kit. I'm a UX Designer based in Chicago with a global network. I came to UX design by way of the arts, where I strived to distill complex ideas into subtly resonant objects. This required me to use a balance of conceptual and technical approaches to problem solving in order to create something unique, but relatable.
Fine art led to a career in exhibition management. Over the years, I’ve worked in a multitude of environments from private galleries, to international art fairs, to (most recently) world renown museums. Each of these experiences has required me to facilitate a diverse range of clientele under very tight deadlines with drastically differing budgets. In short, I’ve had to be nimble, resourceful, and perceptive to succeed. A little scrappiness doesn’t hurt, either. My aim has been to find practical solutions to abstract problems while staying true to the originator's vision.
These past experiences have steered me towards UX Design. I get to indulge my love of creative problem solving by combining pragmatic, evidence-based methodologies with inventive techniques and procedures. Brainstorming and ideation are my favorite parts of the job. I love turning constraints into freedoms in order to help things function at their fullest potential.
