Hey there! I'm Amanda and I'm a designer.

I'm Amanda, a designer at the intersection of emerging tech & human-centered design.

About

I enjoy tackling tough problems and untangling ambiguity in order to better serve people and impact how they experience the world around them.

I currently lead design at IBM Research, where I work closely with scientific researchers, engineering, and a small team of designers to build enterprise applications for emerging quantum and AI technologies.

I am also the UI/UX chair and lead instructor at the Bethel School of Technology, an online bootcamp. (I really love design!)

When I'm not designing you can find me hiking, photographing my adventures with my fiancé Andrew, and managing a serious coffee addiction.
