Back in the 90s I taught myself web design. Around 2003 a real company hired me and gave me the title of "User Interface Designer." I earned a Certified Usability Analyst certification from Human Factors International in 2008, then went into freelancing. I just recently moved to San Francisco where I work full-time as a User Experience Designer.
I'm a transplant from Wisconsin, and have been in the city for four months. I'm a User Experience Designer at a SOMA-based software company.
