Hi, my name is Phelan!

Pronounced: Fay-Lynn

I’m a storyteller, an iced coffee aficionado, and a user experience researcher. 


I have a Master’s in Creative Technologies and Design and Bachelor’s in Spanish Language and Literature.  My degrees have allowed me to combine my passions of creating a meaningful experience and learning about languages and their cultures.


A palm reader in Myanmar told me that I would be successful in the creative world if I put in 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. 


I work hard to create a user-centered experience that aligns with business goals in order to make a mutually beneficial relationship.  I strive to understand the user, despite any language or cultural barriers, in order to achieve a successful and impactful product. 


I look forward to continuing to work in the user experience world, be it research, writing, or design.  I am excited for my next adventure and am currently looking for full-time roles.
