Hi! My name is Nicholas Draney. I'm a creative UX designer with a passion for visual storytelling and a journeyman's knack for problem solving in fast paced environments. My previous experience as a photojournalist and photo editor has taught me to tell other's stories accurately, empathetically and on deadline. Visual design, user interface interactions, user research, project management and working well in group dynamics are my biggest strengths as a designer and contributor. My broader vision as a UX designer is to help others connect through thoughtful problem solving and engaging solutions.
