Thanks for dropping in!
A bit about me . . .   I am a multidisciplinary designer that has previously worked in the consumer appliances and healthcare sectors. My passion for understanding the people that use the things we create has led me to pursuing a Master's degree of Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Institute of Technology, where I am currently writing this.

My journey into UX started with a simple design prompt that quickly evolved into a bigger question of understanding the people I was designing for, and at a deeper level than I had ever intended. What followed was a rabbit trail that I am still pursuing, I just now know what to call it. Perhaps even more importantly, I discovered a purpose within my work. I've found that sometimes how a project looks and how much impact it has aren't always positively correlated. What matters most is the reaction someone has when interacting with the end result.

Now that you know me a little better, how about we formally say hello? Feel free to drop me a greeting at bhumphreys3@gatech.edu
Where I've Been, and What I've Done

Education

Georgia Institute of Technology, M.S. Human-Computer Interaction, 2021

Auburn University, B.Indd Industrial Design, 2019

Current

SimTigrate Design Lab, Graduate Research Assistant (GRA), 2019 - Present
As a student of design, I seek a deeper understanding of design theory and of those who are affected, both directly and indirectly, by the end result. Auburn University's undergraduate Industrial Design program has provided a design foundation which has fostered my interest in areas other than traditional product design.
BIND Auburn University, 2019
2+ Years Professional Experience
Corporate-sponsored studios and collaborative workshops have complemented my educational and professional experience. I have been fortunate to work with Western Forge and Superior Recreational Products as a student-designer, and participate in workshops with Snook, NCAD, and Carlow IT.
Industry Collaboration
2+ years experience improving lives via consumer product and healthcare innovation with GE Appliances and Ethicon (Johnson and Johnson). I have been involved with every stage of product development from concept generation to designing for manufacture, and will be ready for a new experience in May 2019.
