Christin Roman

Hi, my name is Christin Roman.

I’m a user experience design consultant who lives and works in NYC. I help startups design and launch great products by focusing on their users first. I have taught classes in user experience and interaction design at SVA, NYU, and General Assembly.

The name of this blog comes from a quote from Red Burns, the founder of the Interactive Telecommunications Program, where I got my graduate degree at NYU. She once said to our class, “I hate robots.” After some confusion, she explained, “I don’t believe in artificial intelligence, I believe in artificial augmentation.” Red’s philosophy, which lives on in ITP and its students today, is to use technology not for technology’s sake, but for humanity’s.
