About Me

Hi, I'm AJ!

I'm currently a Design Researcher at IBM. I have approximately five years of applied user experience research experience within enterprise organizations.

As a Design Researcher on the IBM Z Mainframe Artificial Intelligence Operations Team at IBM, I focus on helping digital product teams tackle complex problems through human-centered research. I'm fascinated by the complexity and elegance of mainframe computing and work to help it better fit the workflows and mental models of the people who work on mainframes.

I enjoy strategic and exploratory research. Helping teams better understand users on a deep level and in turn use that data to make strategic product decisions drives me.

Outside of work, I am a film nerd and enjoy digital painting.

Nice to "meet" you!
