Not many people can say they’ve gotten a speeding ticket for driving too slowly—but Marli sure can! In her defense, the speeding ticket was given in New Zealand, where everyone drives on the wrong side of the road. She’s had adventures (though not speeding tickets!) in 38 countries so far, and she’s constantly adding new experiences to her list.
Before coming to Mad*Pow, Marli successfully ran a one-woman content strategy consultancy, and became active in the UX and content strategy conference scene. She still speaks frequently, and she brings to Mad*Pow skills developed while working with the likes of Motorola, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Care, and Education First, just to name a few.
Being the organized person she is, Marli admits that her favorite moments are watching the client's eyes light up when a project moves from disorder to order—and when the designers and client all suddenly “see” the pieces coming together.
When she’s not creating magic with words and wow-ing our clients, you can find Marli volunteering with Atlas Workshops, teaching students how to problem solve using design thinking. As if that's not enough, she's also the managing editor of UX Booth magazine.
