Today's Feature is Elliott Lee.
Elliott is user researcher who explores the needs of stakeholders and users to improve digital services. As a designer, he uses his research skills to effectively study the best practices in UX/UI for the particular area he’s working in and how to address the key needs using evidence-based methods. His rigorous & diligent research methods come from his background in studying human attitudes, thoughts, and behaviours as a psychologist. He used to be an assistant professor of psychology where he researched and taught about personality, social processes, and the natural environment. He has studied how being in nature improves our lives and how to encourage people to treat the earth better.
At the heart of it all Elliott is a Christian, a family man, and a talker. Working with him means you’ll get to know his two young kids, who are the funnest little monsters ever, because they constantly pop in during calls. He’ll have a coffee chat with anyone because he loves to talk about anything and everything—from how to fix a hot water tank to understanding the complexities of the human experience. He’ll also have a coffee because he loves coffee—especially paired with a good pastry. He gets spoiled with fancy pastries from his wife who is anawarded pastry chef. After a good coffee, he likes a good beer. He’s been passionately brewing craft beer for over ten years and has worked for two breweries.
