Jolee Nebert is an award-winning industrial design & user experience designer living in San Francisco. Fun fact: she doesn't really like to differentiate between ID and UX, as one can't properly exist without the other.
In her free time you can find her volunteering for the San Francisco Parks Department, sipping coffee in Noe Valley, or teaching herself Python and C4D.
