Hi! I’m Rhoda,

I’m a User Experience (UX) Designer and Anthropologist. I present product strategies, user insights, and analyze features and functionalities with my current clients in the tech-entertainment industry. I find the gap between streaming content online versus cable TV providers fascinating! My role is to provide solutions for complex design challenges to our customers.

My day-to-day includes collaborating with product development teams & building customer research with the goal of enhancing experience designs. As a researcher who has spent many years as an Anthropologist overseas, I conduct studies where I go out into the field to interact with and observe humans engaging with (digital) environments.

I am originally from Brooklyn, NY and currently located in Burbank, California. I’m happy to share UX projects upon request. Thanks for stopping by!

Feel free to contact me.

Testimonials

Rhoda Ismail and UXurLife series gave me new insights into how our use of technology can refine and enhance our day-to-day lives. Rhoda’s podcast demonstrates practical applications for our applications if you will. Her attentiveness to detail and inquisitive nature gave birth to new ways to teach and explain complex concepts in more easily understood terms.
— Randy Hames, Voice Talent, Producer, CEO Edgewater Studios
In working with Rhoda I discovered she is not only a creative person but incredibly thoughtful. She looks at a problem through many lenses and is excellent at producing several possible solutions. Rhoda has an attitude that makes her a dream to work with. Not only is she incredibly self-motivated and always energetic and positive, she is flexible and diplomatic while still making her voice heard. She is an asset to every project she is a part of.
