Born and raised in Colorado, Amy is an explorer at heart. She grew up in the graphic design world, traveled, worked at music festivals, studied entrepreneurship, and found her passion for asking questions and problem solving. She is fascinated with efficiency and finding unexpected ways to use every day objects. Amy found a new love for design after transitioning from branding and print to UX. Learning to work directly with users and developers to incorporate research, prototyping, and testing inspired her to think beyond the screen to systems and behaviors. She is excited to join the cohort and explore what is possible in the world of IxD at SVA.
