Visual designer who codes for fun & believes in kindness
CURRENTLY @ IBM QUANTUM
Hey there! I'm Amanda.
I currently lead brand and web design at IBM Quantum. Prior to that I spent 3 years at IBM Research in a hybrid visual / UX design role working to productize emerging AI technologies. In these roles I've shipped the IBM Quantum Experience, access to quantum computing on the cloud, a re-imagined terminal experience with AI integration, and a front-end UI for a breakthrough technology that changes the way chemical and material scientists conduct research â€“ to name a few!
I'm passionate about designing and developing people (especially young designers) through mentorship and collaboration. I also love creating processes and prototypes to increase productivity for everyone to work better together. Strategic and meticulous, I thrive best in companies that believe design has the power to transform business and people's lives.
In the past few years, I've lived in Austin and San Francisco, found my home in Denver, married a dreamy software engineer named Andrew, and gotten obsessed with programming! (Why binge Netflix when you can binge Frontend Masters?) When I'm not behind the computer I enjoy taking photographs and recharging outdoors on the mountain.
If you're still here, thank you for taking your precious time to learn a little about me! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to see my work or connect â€“ preferably over coffee or a craft beer!
