Terri BW

In November 2017 I quit my job in customer support in search of a more fulfilling career. I began pursuing design a few months later by enrolling in a UX bootcamp. Shortly after graduation, I scored my first design job interning for one of my favorite designers, Tobias van Schneider. Most of the work I did was for Semplice and the DESK blog.

Currently, I'm working as an Associate Product Designer at Funsize in Austin, TX.

I was born in the Chicago area, went to school in Austin, moved away to Nashville for college, spent three wonderful years in Honolulu, one year across NorCal and SoCal, and now I'm finally back in Austin! Oh, and I've lived and worked in China and Scotland sometime in between all of that.

In November 2017 I quit my job with T-Mobile in search of a more fulfilling career. I began pursuing design a few months later by enrolling in a UX bootcamp. Shortly after graduation, I scored my first design job interning for one of my favorite designers, Tobias van Schneider. Most of the work I did was for Semplice and the DESK blog. Throughout my internship, I documented the lessons I learned in a three part blog series; you can read the last article and full series here.

Currently, I'm working as a Jr. Product Designer at Funsize in Austin, TX.

In my free time I enjoy trying new recipes, thinking about what tattoo to get next and not getting it, and listening to podcasts (I’m always open to new recommendations!).
