I’ve had the opportunity to contribute some of my thoughts both on this site and on other sites. I’ve tried to include example pieces and links to them below to give you a better idea of what I’m saying and where I’m saying it!
“Thanks Lis, for providing these “thought-provoking” ideas.”

Keeping It Real About UX Blog
Keeping It Real About UX Blog
This blog is really what started it all for me. I started Keeping It Real About UX back in 2007 in an attempt to share my thoughts and observations about my work, and the industry I work in, with the rest of the community (and anyone who would listen, really). After years of consistently posting new ideas and topics, I found that I wasn’t able to keep up with it as I once did. That’s ok though, because I still put new thoughts there now and again, and, even better, I keep the older thoughts around in case you missed them!

Since Media Temple began in 1998, they’ve been on a mission to help web developers, designers, digital entrepreneurs, and innovators bring their ideas to life online.

Here I write about both bridging the work/life gap of the creative, as well as, overcoming the plight of the creative entrepreneur.
