I'm Lizzie_

I am someone who is constantly curious and loves to know the "why?" to everything. For me product design is the perfect intersection of creativity, data, people, with business mixed in. I love making data-driven decisions that help solve the problems of others.

I currently am a Product Designer for PitchBook data where our products help shape the world economy.

Things I value:
Ambiguity & Complex Problems -  I love solving complex and possibly blurry problems. I'll run with it and learn on the way.
Learning - We all have our blindspots and we can't know everything. This is why I am constantly learning and teaching myself new things.
Collaboration - I love people, it's part of the reason I become a designer, and even more so I love working and collaborating with others. I believe the best ideas come from collaboration.
A Growth Mindset - The first version will never be the one, you must fail and iterate again to come up with the best ideas.

When I am not designing I am either listening to techno, cooking, traveling, or dancing with my friends.
