Things a UX professional does all day.
Looking to move into the UX field? Visual design and development skills will certainly be useful but what else makes up a UX professionals day to day?

+Google+ really needs to stop throwing red Add and Follow buttons at me everywhere! So annoying.

A friend of mine up here at +CrossFit Jersey City has come up with a pretty cool shirt for everyone who has to deal with collarbone brusing.

He's currently running a kickstarter campaign to see if he can get it produced: http://kck.st/1oKoVX3

Check it out if cleans or push press put have ever put a bruising on you!

(Desktop) I Have A Question...  - 
 
Anyone else notice that when searching for communities, the results are sometimes missing a ton fo communities that match the keyword?

For example: A search for "crossfit" turns up exactly 2 communities while it is clear that there are many more. Even the autocomplete dropdown shows one community that the full search doesn't list. What's going on with that? Another example would be "eyetracking". Same issue.

Yup, did that! Glad I'm not the first/only one... How annoying. Hope they can did that soon.

Introduction
I'm a user experience researcher and designer with a passion for everything related to Human-Computer Interaction and a keen eye for visual design. Through 4+ years of experience doing user research and an MS in Interaction Design, I've built a thorough and broad understanding of every aspect of the user experience design process. 

In addition to my user experience passion, I'm also a general science & and technology geek. I spend a lot of time experimenting with my digital devices and catching up on the latest research.
