Buhr.Pronounced /bɜr/.

I’m a product designer living in Austin, TX; moved from San Francisco about a year ago. I graduated from University of California, San Diego in 2010 with a degree in Human Biology. Kind of random, right? I had total intent on becoming a nurse practitioner, but decided to take a few design courses to scratch an itch. Needless to say, I fell in love with it and made a career shift. Believe it or not, the skills transfer over (especially research methodology) and still help me to this day.

I moved to San Francisco to pursue a MFA degree in Web Design + New Media at Academy of Art University and also landed a job at Uber as a product designer. At Uber, I was on the Strategic Partnerships team and got to work on the most amazing product integrations with partners like Snapchat, Apple, Facebook Messenger, OpenTable, and Foursquare. Later, I was placed on Engagement where I worked on the core rider app.

I’m now at Visa as a Senior UX Designer. I’d be happy to tell you more about my story or discuss work! Just reach out 🙂
