About Me

Hi, I'm Elaine Anzaldo, a conversation designer in the Bay Area. What's a conversation designer you may ask? Let me put it this way: I'm good with words.

My career started in the high-stakes field of language translation. Mess up one word and you might end up changing the meaning of the entire sentence! I quickly learned that human communcation relies heavily on how we say what we say (tone, inflection, speed) and even what we don't say (pauses, facial expressions, etc.)

My aim now is to help machines effectively communicate with humans. Saving the world from "please listen carefully as our menu options have changed," one design at a time.
