Hi, I'm Amanda!
I have always had a passion for creating experiences. I was brought up in my family's hospitality businesses. I loved seeing the work behind the scenes that helped create the experience customers were while dining. I learned how important every experience was for customers while working in the restaurant industry. From the website to the menu, I found that each piece had it's purpose to help create a unique and friendly experience.
I graduated from the University at Buffalo and supplemented my degree with a certificate course in graphic design at Pratt Institute. While working as a graphic designer I learned more about creating functional design rather than just beautiful design. I then enrolled into the Flatiron School UX Design program to fine tune my skills and transition to UX Design.
My unique background has helped shape me into an empathetic designer who strives to solve problems through collaboration and research.
