Like many in the UX field, Anthony Hempell, President and Managing Director of Antenna Consulting, took a long and winding path to work in UX and eventually lead his own consultancy.
"It’s one of the things I love to hear about from anyone I meet in our industry — what did you do before? What prompted you to make the move? What keeps you interested and engaged?”
"I think the diversity of backgrounds among UX practitioners is one of our greatest strengths,” he explains.
