A child-like sketched drawing of Paris, a very round head with large eyes and long stringy eyelashes.

About

A white woman with shoulder length hair smiling with teeth, standing in front of flower bunches and vines in the summer.

If you’re here for work talk

I'm currently dividing my time between Brooklyn and Nashville as a Product Design Director and Accessibility Specialist at Amplify Education (an Emerson Collective EdTech company). I have the privilege of leading a UX design team, focusing on the development and maintenance of interactive curriculum for our Literacy suite of products. The suite is comprised of English and Spanish language web apps, sites, and platforms designed for K–12 classrooms, serving school districts across the US. I have a fine arts background, with a BFA in Graphic Design and minor in Psychology.

Personal, for a second

I love figure drawing, RPGs, and my last name is pronounced like 'excursion' but with an 'o'. I also have a very dumb, unprofessional Instagram.

To get in touch, email me at parisosgerchian@gmail.com and feel free to download my resume.
