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?

Yep. Jeffrey Potter www.jbrianpotter.com

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

Got very interested in Wayfinding- the science of Signage in public spaces. This field has a lot to teach us about web navigation as well. I love creative collaboration. UX is very exciting and interesting to me, and where the industry is going. There also seems to be a great out pouring of support and sharing of skills and practices.

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

I'd like a walk through of some of the major tent poles of UX- Prototyping, Journey Mapping, Wireframes, personas, scenarios, etc. I'd like to hear what employers are looking for and how to present myself and my work to a non-UXer so that they understand and see the value. I'd like to ramp up my development chops quickly and know better how to communicate with developers. A Book Club would be useful, too, to force us to keep studying the topic and new advances as they develop.

Introduction

So I'm a Graphic Designer, with 5 years Print Experience and 1 year with Web experience simultaneously moving to Los Angeles and the Ux Field. Anxious to learn new skills and meet people in this community!
