who am i

hi there! 🌱

I’m Isabella Masiello (she/her), a UX-er working out of Maryland.

I’m passionate about making products useful, usable, & delightful. I spent my childhood playing point & click adventure games, reading through the library, & watching all cartoons. I hope to use that joyful whimsy & my detail-oriented thought process to iteratively improve every product, service, & experience I come across.
