Something about Mary

I am a UX Designer based in Boston, MA with a passion for the creative process and making a difference through design. I have a precise attention to detail and I’m constantly seeking improvement. Always ready for a challenge, I live by the French proverb, “Quand on veut, on peut” (“If you want to, you can”).

I enjoy collaboration, as I believe the best ideas are a result of people working together. I always approach my work with a positive attitude and a strong desire to learn. I have a diverse range of skills, including: UX, UI, interaction design, information architecture, wireframing, visual design, user testing, user research, prototyping, web design, responsive design, branding, logo design, and typography.
