Hi there, I'm Talisha.

Though some describe me as quiet, I’ve always been keenly observant and analytical. My ability to assess and uncover the why in any situation makes me a strong researcher.

Whether its improving a digital experience or finding a more effective way to organize my possessions, I love solving problems. My drive towards applying research insights makes me an effective designer.

I’ve tried everything from back-end development and QA testing to user research and UI design. As a result, I understand the needs of different teams in the digital product development process. My broad experience in technology makes me a better collaborator.

When I am not working I spend my time dancing and practicing photography. 

Feel free to reach out to me: talisha.payton@gmail.com
