Humans x Tech
Eli is fascinated by the intersection of people and technology. He brings this curiosity to his role as the Director of User Experience, where he conducts research to understand how people interact with software and systems. Together with users, business leaders, and software developers, Eli works to design holistic systems that consider and balance the unique needs of multiple groups of people. Through his work, Eli strives to bring more inclusive and human-centered practices to the forefront of the AEC industry.
Eli is a Nintendo and board game nut. He is such a fanboy that he even sports a Zelda triforce tattoo on his wrist. He lives for hosting board game nights, and his guests can expect a night full of strategy board games like Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. Playing games in adulthood reminds Eli of being a kid, and, let’s be honest, we all need a little childhood comfort from time to time!
Eli can usually be found at a concert supporting local musicians or performing at an open mic. He plays guitar and piano, sings, and writes his own music. He started piano lessons when he was 4 years old, and at 15 picked up an acoustic guitar and taught himself how to play. While Eli may consider his own personal style as alternative or indie, he loves rap and hip-hop as well.
