Learn UX Seattle


Learn UX Seattle

is a free-to-all meetup group dedicated to nurturing and mentoring career advancement and community within the Greater Seattle UX and Tech space.


Learn UX Seattle is my way of giving back to our Seattle Tech and Design community.

When I first started out in this industry I had a lot of help from strangers to mentor me on how to break into UX upon finishing Grad School for Design. I know I would not be in the place I am today without the help of the kind and generous people in the community, and I am proud that I am able to give back to my community through my Learn UX Seattle meetup.

Learn UX Seattle is my passion project that I nurtured in my free time that I grew as sole organizer from less than 250 members to one of Seattle’s biggest, most active meetups with over 2,700 members (as of Q1 2019).

Learn UX Seattle is all about nurturing and mentoring those who want to be a part of our thriving Seattle UX community. I provide, plan, and run free meetups and events under the banner of my Learn UX Seattle Meetup. These events include presentations, seminars, workshops, and software demos all rooted in UX.

I am extremely passionate about being involved in our Seattle UX community, so I grew Learn UX Seattle from the ground-up to one of the biggest, most active UX Meetups in Seattle.

During the time I have owned this meet up, I have:

- grown the meetup from less than 250 members to over 2,700 members as the sole owner/organizer
- planned, organized, and hosted over 20 UX meetup events to date
- directed meetup events for large, national UX Conferences such as the yearly ConveyUX Conference
- consulted other conference organizers on best practices for UX events organization
