Image: Mark O'Black Profile Picture

Hi, I'm Mark! I currently work as a communications specialist for Duquesne University's IT department. In my role, I develop a wide range of communications, including written, visual and technical. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time writing, studying user experience design and running.

My goal is to find a job as a UX designer or technical writer. I believe each of these fields offers the opportunity to shape the user experience and help empower anyone using a product or service by providing clear messaging, whether it's through documentation or an app's interface and copy. Doing so allows users to enjoy using a product or service, resolve problems on their own, and place their trust in a company.
