Welcome!

Chris McCorkle Welcome! I'm Chris McCorkle, a UX Engineer in Seattle.

My core strengths of UX Design, UI Design, and Front-end Development are derived from my passion for understanding users and creating tangible solutions through an iterative design process, testing, and prototyping.

As a UX Engineer, I combine my love for the user experience with my technical front-end development skillset to create a highly effective synthesis of design and development.

Preferring open thought and communication to a black-box departmental design approach, I thrive in a collaborative workspace, and in the presence of fellow designers, developers, executives, and customers. Thank you for taking the time to review my stuff
