experience
          1/09 - 4/09          My position at Bit Group allowed me to take on many different roles within the
               Bit Group       User Experience team; continuing as a visual designer but also undertaking
            Cambridge, MA      iterative design, prototyping, user research, SEO, content auditing, heuristic
                               evaluations, usability, and leading several focus groups. As the Senior User
                               Experience Designer, client interaction and project management was required
                               daily, as well as impeccable communication and organization skills.




        9/07 - 12/08           While working at Hunt & Gather as Senior Designer and User Experience
          Hunt & Gather        Expert, I architected, designed, and developed many websites, content
               Allston, MA     management systems, and mobile applications always communicating
                               directly with clients from start to finish. Beginning with the site architecture,
                               wireframes, and design development, I took on many responsibilities as not
                               only a web site designer, but also as an information architect. Working side-
                               by-side with the Creative and Art Directors, my design skills and work ethic
                               flourished within the fast-paced and highly-collaborative office. Hunt & Gather
                               has been recognized by many creative organizations, and received a 2008
                               MITX award for the CRV website, for which I was the lead designer.

                               the User Experience Group I executed User Experience, User Interface, and
                               Rich Internet Application designs. While working at Keane, I also expanded
                               my experience in Information Architecture, System Architecture, Web
                               Development and coding, and Business Analysis.
