Hi, I'm Julia

I like to create cool things.

Who I Am: The Basics

I'm a creative technologist who's passionate about using technology to drive social change. I have experience in UX/UI design, web development, user research, and project management. I'm a team player who always strives for excellence, and I'm perpetually curious about this amazing world we live in. I belive that great technology is just like magic and can be used to build anything we can imagine.

I love technology because I love people. I'm an extrovert, a proud ENFP (discover your own Myers Briggs personality type here) who is constantly interested in and amazed by what makes others tick. I like to approach everything I do from a human-centered mindset - above all, I design/code/manage/create for the user.

In my spare time I like to read, make playlists on Spotify, run, play the ukulele/piano/clarinet, write and read articles on Medium, and listen to poetry on YouTube.
