About Brooks Tiffany

Brooks Tiffany's Face

Current Situation

I live in Seattle, Washington with my amazing wife, Hannah, and I'm pursuing a M.S. in Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington with an expected graduation of May 2018. I have experience as a UX researcher and UX designer by working on mobile app development projects with Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center, Kaiser Permanente Washingtion Health Research Institute, and Actofit (wearable fitness tacker).

Air Force

I served in the Air Force from 2005 to 2010 and worked as an weapons loader supporting F-16s at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. While serving, I went on several deployments to include two tours in Iraq. When time permitted, I chipped away at my education and earned an Associates Degree. In 2010, I decided to transfer into the Air Force Reserve and further my education as a full time student at Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech

I graduated with honors from Virginia Tech in December, 2013 with a B.A. in English/Professional Writing, and a minor in Psychology. While at Tech, I leapt at any chance to gain experience and compiled a diverse portfolio that includes experience in technical communication, ethnographic research, creative writing, and sports journalism.

Startup Experience

After graduating, I took a job in the digital startup world working for an exciting young company named Heyo. While working there, I gained good experience at a rapid pace working with a diverse team to solve problems with technology – specifically, helping small businesses grow online through social media. I've worn many hats for Heyo including customer care manager, social media manager, technical writer, blogger, quality assurance tester, and sales rep.
