Professional experience: Danielle is a writer by trade on the design team at Microsoft. With a background in creative writing, Danielle built an early career as an arts critic, bartender, copywriter, poet, and UX writer into her current role as translator of all things technology. As a communications expert, language is her greatest tool to simplify what is complex and speak plainly to the intricacies of technology and design.
On behalf of Microsoft she has written in partnership with Fast Company, Dribbble, AIGA, IxDA, IDSA, and Adobe. Her writing and creative work directly affect product experiences and audience perception – a fact which keeps her humble. She's the last person still making phone calls to friends and is notoriously fond of paper as a medium. Danielle feels at home everywhere and hails from Wisconsin, USA.
