My name is Jesse Cunningham I am a User Experience Designer from North Potomac Maryland. I am passionate about crafting engaging user experiences through web and mobile application design.
I was fortunate to find my passion early in my college career. While completing my dual degree in Information Systems and Marketing I was hired as a full time summer intern at TerpSys where I was mentored as an Information architecture.
After graduating from college I landed my first contract position at the Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS) as a UX/UI Designer. This position gave me broad exposure and experience in a wide variety of web design disciplines including user interface design, user experience design, and front end development.
During my time at IBTS I decided to move south to Charlotte North Carolina. I couldn't be happier to be in such an awesome and welcoming city. I am currently working as a User Experience Designer on a contract at Duke Energy Corporation.
