About Me

Headshot of Amanda NewmanI’ve been working in digital design for over 15 years, specializing in interfaces and user experience. These days, I’m a Sr. UI/UX Designer at Datto (from the recently-acquired Autotask Corp.). In a past life, I worked on casual games and virtual world experiences, which was a wild ride and valuable crash course in human behavior.

Before “UX” had any real recognition, we were just designers who cared about people.

I’ve always been driven by a passion for connecting people with technology that can improve their lives, and I personally measure success by the value a product brings to a person.

As of late, I’m loving the challenges of tuning processes, implementing a design system, and fostering cross-discipline collaboration in order to enable our UX team at Datto to be more efficient and effective!

In my spare time, I’m an electronic musician and co-founder of The Coterminous Collectiv (a collective of Hudson Valley area electronic musicians and multimedia artists), a dancer, cat mom, terrarium-maker, and serial DIY-er. I believe that art is a universal language and a uniter of people and that we should all share more of it.

I love living in/exploring the beautiful Catskill mountains of Upstate NY, and finding the best cup of coffee wherever life takes me.
