My Interest in UX stems from the need to gauge felt experience with the products we use on a daily basis. Through wireframes, ethnographic studies, contextual inquiry and other HCI centered testing I enjoy studying people and taking the insights I gather and develop new designs or improve existing ones.
I am currently looking for work under my own freelance business Fire Inside Design or a full-time position. I am finding it difficult to currently find people to talk about UX and would like a forum for my own thoughts and listen to what others have to say. I would like to develop a dialogue with the group and make the group a regular commitment for myself.
I am a UI/UX designer relocating to Northampton Massachusetts. I really want to get involved with the local UX community and would like to introduce myself. I am currently looking for work and I enjoy collaborating with others.
I think if it continues to grow they might need to find larger venues. If the association is going for a smaller feel it is almost the perfect size. I think as the field of UX continues to grow they can expect more people attending future meetups.
