You have a passion for outstanding user experience at all touchpoints, and you use creativity, empathy, and a diverse breadth of tools and methodologies to help define what that end-to-end experience looks like. You care deeply about design solutions that strike the balance of beautiful and feasible. You communicate clearly and have a collaborative spirit. You are a design thinker AND doer, a self-starter with a growth mindset in relation to your own personal development.
