hi, i'm kristie
I’m a Interactive designer from Austin, Tx. I specialize in UX | UI.
I am driven by creating narratives in my work by designing empathetic solutions that humanizes data. I am fascinated with technology and enjoy how people are using it to create products and even art.
Outside of design, I've helped build computational fluency with Scratch in San Marcos, Texas as a workshop facilitator at both San Marcos elementary schools and The San Marcos Public Library. In July of 2018, a group of students and I attended Scratch Conference 2018 at MIT to share our experience as workshop facilitators. Here's the schedule from the conference:
Small Town Coding
In May of 2018, I spoke at Maker Faire Austin at the Maker Faire Edu Summit to share my perspective of teaching computational fluency.
In the past, I actively shot documentary style photography and sometime use my 6+ years of experience to capture images, today. I am curious of how computer programmers combine software and hardware to create immersive experiences with existing and new forms of technology and enjoy these collaborative moments.
When I'm not designing or following passion projects, you can often find me at the dog park with my German Shepherd, reading a good book, or day dreaming about traveling to South Korea.
Collaboration is the best way to make things, let's share our skills together!
