unnamedBillie Mandel is the new Director of User Experience at FiveStars, and teaches UX design at General Assembly. She is a design strategy geek with 17+ years leading teams of software creatives — UX and visual designers, researchers, content people, product people, front-end developers — the folks who figure out what to build, why, and how to make it amazing. The design problems that excite Billie most are at the intersection of business, product strategy, and cross-device design, with a little bit of social software and game design theory thrown in for spice and compelling-ness.
Billie is also a synaesthete, a painter and sculptor, and a novelist, as well as a Lambda Literary Fellow. She has social science degrees from Stanford and Berkeley that she uses in her professional life more often than anyone would ever guess. Her latest crusade within the design industry is to demonstrate the value of getting more people to feel all their feelings, and show up at work with their full selves. She also uses the word "badass" a little too often.  billiemandel.com    @synaesthete
