I'm betting you're the kind of founder that wants to build an amazing (and profitable) product experience. You wouldn't be here if you weren't. In order to do that, you need a UX professional to support you.


The problem is that hiring your first designer is hard. What type of designer should you hire, as they all seem to do something slightly different? And once you find that person, can you afford them? A junior designer won't cut it.


I believe every startup deserves access to timely, affordable UX advice. I understand that you're in a bind, stuck between needing support, and actually getting it. I'm here to fill that gap for you.


Here's how it works. First, we need to set up a quick call to introduce ourselves, and for me to understand what, exactly, you need. Then we'll discuss the right type of engagement. It may be that we can solve your most pressing issues with a single one-hour call. Or you may decide that you need recurring UX support.


No matter your choice, once you've made it, we'll get to work. On your schedule, and with one-off or monthly billing depending on your choice.


Now, schedule that first call so you can stop floundering and start feeling confident about what your users need, and their experience with your product.
