UX strategist on a mission to make the internet a better place, one website at a time.

I’m Kelly Kautz. I built my first website in 1995 and I’ve been oversharing on the internet ever since.

Today I work for JPL, a full-service marketing agency, where I established its UX strategy practice. I set digital strategies for global brands and organizations in CPG, healthcare, higher education and B2B verticals. I also speak about digital marketing and user experience strategy at conferences nationwide.

As a freelancer writer, my work has appeared in the New York Times, Forbes, Salon and other publications.
