About Me

Sally Anderson

User Experience Consultant

User experience consultant and all-around geek located in the great state of Texas.

I started out as a web hobbyist in the late 1990s and quickly became a self-taught designer and developer. On a tight budget, I had to learn to do everything myself since I wanted my designs to function as well as they looked.  I’ve since transitioned to user experience; however, my experiences allow me to understand the challenges and limitations of design and development.

In my free time, I enjoy studying interior design, gardening, gaming, creative writing, yoga, and running with my dog.
