As a user experience designer I work collaboratively with designers, developers and business analysts to develop user experience solutions in an agile project delivery. I usually solve complex problems by applying methodical thinking, logic and pragmatism. And I am continuously challenged with established thinking while championing new ideas to stakeholders in the business. I am expected to infuse rigor into everything I touch to ensure it is comprehensive.
