Brynn Evans is obsessed with the intersection of social networks and human behavior. At first she shunned social psychology, finding real joys in neuroscience and dissecting brains. But after a 6-year stint as a neuropsychologist, she switched to understanding how people act and behave (with each other!) in the real world. And when Digg and Facebook and Twitter entered the scene, her work dovetailed again into social interaction design. Today she’s the Social Interaction Lead and UX Researcher at Bolt | Peters.
In her free time, Brynn enjoys drawing comics and overbooking herself with community events. She runs the Overlap SF meetups and is a board member with the Awesome Foundation (SF), which awards $1,000 grants every month to awesome local projects. She’s also a judge and advisor to the betacup design competition, which deals with the growing problem of drinking (too much) coffee out of non-recyclable paper cups. Brynn gives talks and workshops on social search, and if you get her talking, she won’t shut up about her love for Japanese green tea. She can be found across the web in all the usual places: twitter, facebook, linkedin, slideshare.
