About Cheryl


I am a seasoned product professional with experience as a researcher, ethnographer, and in user experience. As a documentary filmmaker, I researched, interviewed, did storyboarding, wrote papers and proposals, built corresponding websites, and edited the films. As a UX Designer, I perform these same tasks using different technologies. The marriage of the human component and technology is fascinating and mirrors the juxtaposition of quantitative and qualitative research. I’ve spent my education and career thinking about how to represent people, consider what people’s needs are, and enjoying the task of revealing these processes and people through technology.

With a graduate degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Communication Studies (Electronic Media and Ethnography), I have written numerous ethnographic papers based on research, won awards for my ethnographic fieldwork, and have vast experience writing and in interviewing and testing. My specialties are Research, Usability Studies, Task Analysis, Storyboarding, Archetypes and Personas, Userflow/IA, Report Writing, Data Collection, Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, and Journey and Empathy Mapping. My skills include Sketch, Invision, Adobe Creative Suite, Trello, Microsoft Office Suite, and Confluence. In addition to my UX skills, I am a competent developer and am proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and Django. I also have some serious organizational skills, a great attention to detail, and an ability to bring teams together.
