Aaron Houssian

Bloomington, Illinois, United States

I'm a father, husband, user researcher, designer, usability specialist, Mormon and PhD candidate (2014 expected graduation).

I'm a Sr. User Experiennce Researcher workign in the Strategic Resources department at State Farm Insurance. I'm doing the final revisions on my thesis entitled: "Fit Not Transfer: Perspective Taking in Boundary Communication between Research and Implementation." I'll defend the thesis later this year. Please see my blog, portfolio, résumé, or complete CV.

My passion is in the research, the spreading of insights, and seeing tangible results.

While I consider myself a user researcher I see how my work applies in three areas: 1) User eXperience Design, 2) Customer eXperience, and 3) Employee eXperience (making better companies).
