I'm Nannearl —

[Nuh-nurl]

A user advocate and connector of ideas.

I’m a proud Virginia native and systems thinker with a special place in my heart for social good, fitness, and education. My long-standing passion is technology and the ways in which disenfranchised groups can use, interact with, and benefit from it. I’m a major supporter of various mentorship programs and a spirited advocate of equity and social justice. Outside of trying to save the world, I enjoy archery, hiking, and teaching others about health & exercise. I'm also a huge foodie, quite the hip hop lover, a natural hair product evangelist, and am always down for a dope Netflix binge.

Professionally, I’m crazy about UX. I am the Co-Founder and Director of User Experience for Emma Beauty, a beauty tech startup based in Los Angeles that strives to help beauty businesses and consumers gain more insight in order to make better and more informed decisions.

In my free time (a rare occassion), I do UX consulting, find ways to improve my other ventures, mentor design students in the Thinkful Product Design Flex program, and serve as the Los Angeles City Lead for Black Tech Women — the premier international community for Black women in the tech ecosysytem to connect, learn, and grow — where I facilitate the connection of people and opportunities while establishing and maintaining corporate partnerships across the greater LA area.
