Hi there, I’m Marie!
As Enlightened Digital’s newest contributor, I’m happy to be part of the team! I’m writing to you live from New York City, where I currently work as a UX designer at a small tech company. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs, so it felt natural for me to take on this challenge to spread what I’ve learned over the course of my career.
While technology is a more recent interest of mine, my long-time passion has been writing. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and I’ve dabbled in almost every genre, from science fiction to poetry.
My infatuation with tech first emerged when I realized the vast impact social media has on our society. Since then, I’ve dedicated my career to creating meaningful online experiences. If I can be just a small part of the initiative to connect today’s people of the Internet, I’m more than happy.
Working at a small company means that I don’t have a designated office space, so during the week, you can probably find me hunched over my laptop at my kitchen table. Luckily, I have my trusty French bulldog, Ozzy, to keep me company throughout the day. On the weekends, I’ll do whatever it takes to get outside! Whether it’s scouting out the newest coffee shop or biking through Central Park, I love to take advantage of all the attractions New York has to offer.
Life as a UX designer means that no two days are ever the same. There’s always something new to learn, which leads to new ways of understanding the world. Writing about tech here on Enlightened Digital allows me to share my ever-expanding perspective on the industry— I hope you find it as exciting as I do!
