Hi, I’m Sharon and I am a product designer based in Chicago.

introduction

01

I have over six years of experience shipping user experiences and interfaces at disruptive user-centered companies.

I’ve work on nimble, delivery-focused teams that drive the adoption of cutting-edge technology.

I spend the majority of my time collaborating with engineers, product owners, and marketing leads to build enterprise software that helps people understand their data and shape the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

I also partner with small businesses and individuals across various industries to communicate visual identities, fulfill business needs, and enhance product adoption.

Experience

Narrative Science

Day-to-day, I collaborate with product owners to define the features and user experiences of a next generation Natural Language Generation (NLG) platform.

I have played an integral role in guiding the product team’s approach to user research. I help shape the design team’s UX strategy by creating and overseeing the implementation of end-to-end designs that bridge the gap between product, engineering, and marketing.

I occasionally partner with individuals and small businesses to tackle new problems that challenge my design capabilities.

Seelio by Keypath

As one of Seelio’s first five employees, I helped build the company’s brand and visual identity, user experience strategies, and product vision.

Starting as a Design Intern in March of 2012, within six months, I had taken on UI & UX leadership for the company, helping research and create end-to-end designs, external marketing pages, all marketing collateral, and ultimately establishing it within a 500+ person organization upon its acquisition in 2015.
