I am a user experience (UX) designer motivated by people. Whether it’s creating a beautiful
production for an audience, writing a relatable story for my blog following, or designing a usable and accessible product for a client.
During my masters of science, my research focused on a UX design approach for designing technology for improvised theatre. My research led me to publish multiple research papers and present my work at different conferences around the world including the Conference on Designing Interactive Systems 2018 in Hong Kong, the Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction 2019 in Arizona, and The 2019 Prague Quadrennial. My design and communication skills are exemplified by my interdisciplinary work and I believe these skills can apply to many design oriented and customer centric positions.
What I’m doing. I am currently working on my own personal brand and blog, Renee Claire Blog, through Patreon. I am applying my UX design skills to create and promote my work through social media. I consider my brand, my audience, and my own passion for writing when creating content.
What I’ve done. In 2019, I completed a masters of science in computational media design at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Lora Oehlberg (computer science department) and April Viczko (drama department). I also completed my bachelor of science in computer science at the University of Calgary in 2017. My bachelor of science degree includes a concentration in computer graphics and a minor in visual studies and art history. My multitasking skills were showcased by my work as a Starbucks barista throughout my bachelor degree and my volunteer work teaching young people at the Calgary Public Library throughout my MSc degree.
