This is a professional group. Please add a photo that includes your face. Also, please use your real name. Treat your Meetup profile the same way you treat your LinkedIn one. Carefully curate it & keep it professional. Are you willing to do this?

Sure. My name is Elisabeth Bentley but please call me Lizzy.

What is your interest in the field of User Experience? (ie, do you work as a UX designer or architect? Are you a student?

As noted above, I work primarily as a screenwriter. However, working with non-fiction material for the majority of my career, I've developed many strategies for crafting narrative out of real events, already shot footage and fragments of the historical record. These challenges have led me to spend a lot of time coming up with data management strategies that reflect dramatic structure. It is this area of inquiry that has brought me to the UX field.

What kind of programs would you like to see? What kinds of events would further your career?

I would like to attend events that consider database construction with an eye to narrative. In short, I think techniques from UX have a lot to offer other fields and I look forward to being part of multi-disciplinary problem solving.


Elisabeth Bentley is a writer/producer whose films have been nominated for a WGA Award and short-listed for an Academy Award in 2007, honored at Cannes, Sundance, the Berlinale and MoMA and broadcast on HBO and the Sundance and SyFy channels.
