I'm Ellen.

I'm an Austin-based senior experience designer, currently building digital experiences at Emergent Order Co. Over the last six years, I've specialized in experience design, UX research + strategy, and integrating technology into story-driven media, like virutal reality.

My work is focused on building robust creative strategies and human-centered designs. I love collaborating and experimenting. My process focuses on having a deep understanding not just of design principles, but user psychology, technology, and business strategy, too — and a willingness to approach design challenges with a variety of disciplines and perspectives.
