Hi, my name is Phelan!
I’ve always been a people person and a problem solver. This has translated into my work and finding a passion for User Experience. Working towards a Master’s of Science in Technology, Media and Society with a focus in Creative, Technologies and Design I have been able to explore the field of User Experience and focus on research.
A palm reader in Myanmar told me that I would be successful in the creative world if I put the work in. He also told me that I would be a “song star”, must eat two eggs every day, and should go to sleep at 7:00 pm. There was a language barrier, but I believe the first statement to be true.
Born and raised in San Diego, California, I have always had the desire to explore the world and source inspiration from all aspects of its diverse cultures. In the spring of 2016, I had the opportunity to travel around Asia and Africa with Semester at Sea. This allowed me to have a more empathetic view of people. I am driven by my curiosity about what makes people tick and how I can help people have a better overall experience.
I am currently looking for full-time roles starting in May after graduation.
