About Me

Hello, My name is Nick Natalie and I am Junior User Experiance Design Major at Bradley University. Technology and art have always been a passion of mine when i was younger, and i've alwasy liked talking to poeple and interacting with others. So i wanted to combine all of these ideas into one major that i thought fit them and that was User Experiance. I've really enjoyed the opportunity's Bradley has given me the past few years to work with my peers on projects for the likes of Caterpillar and Pekin Insurance. When working on these projects I found that i always loved the client interaction the most and always felt drawn to it. When other people would hate doing that sort of thing I've alwasy enjoyed it. I hope to continue get new opportunitys and better myself to help me succeed in my future work and life.
