Appnovator Spotlight Wyatt Kay

Meet Wyatt Kay, Sr. UX Strategist and lover of a good bowl of cereal.


Tell us about your role:

My role as a Sr. UX Strategist is a hybrid between strategy and design. I work with clients to develop solutions from kickoff to delivery. I develop strategies and utilize design thinking to create artifacts that help articulate those strategies. It can range from something small and basic, like a simple user flow, to more complex deliverables like user journey maps, information architecture, wireframes etc.

What’s one of the most interesting parts of your job?

One of the most interesting parts of my job is getting to work side by side with stakeholders and users to develop solutions that meet the wants and needs of both parties.

What do you love most about what you do?

I love being a part of the entire project process which gives me the opportunity to connect with lots of different people.

What does being an Appnovator mean to you?

To me, being an Appnovator means having a thirst for knowledge and a passion for collaboration. It's about being open to new ideas and working with multiple stakeholders and collaborators, to bring the best possible products to market.

In 3 words, how would your family and friends describe you?

Kind, compassionate and funny (I hope)!

In your time off, what’s your favourite hobby? 

In the summer, I enjoy going on wilderness canoe trips or camping. In the winter, skiing!

What do you do to relax?

If the weather is nice I like to get outside and enjoy the sun! I also enjoy playing video games.

What is your favourite meal?

I love all kinds of cuisine and can appreciate a nice gourmet meal, but nothing beats a bowl of cereal.

What is the bravest thing you've done?

Working at a camp for two summers leading a wilderness canoe-tripping program. I took groups of kids aged 11 - 16 out into the wilderness for up to 10 days. I was responsible for cooking meals, mentoring, outdoor education, fostering a fun environment and of course, their health and safety.

What’s the last song you listened to?

Underwater by Aluna

Coffee or Tea?
