David Hawkins

I'm a UX professional incorporating Human Factors Psychology into product design.

I work with product and development teams to implement features into production.

I create design systems, implement UX operations into sprint workflows, and collaborate with dev teams.

I think strategically, prioritize roadmaps, and scope features for program increments.
