As a UX designer for Maelstrom, IBM's premiere internship program lead by Devin O'Bryan, I was one of thirteen designers selected out of thousands of applicants from around the world to spend 3 months working on a variety of creative projects within the IBM Design Lab. This experience allowed me to work at the pace of a startup alongside seasoned design professionals in a rigorous corporate environment. I tried out product design, user experience research and design, visual design, and front-end development.
