Path that lead you to UX
User experience was always important to me, regardless of the types of work or the people I managed. There was a time that I was deciding between two jobs. I could either work at a small neighborhood grocery store or manage an interactive studio team at a big advertising agency. These were completely different jobs, but both provided opportunities to improve customer/user experience. I went with the one that had a greater impact.
