Alexa Andrzejewski is the founder of Foodspotting, a visual local guide that makes finding and sharing food recommendations as easy as snapping a photo. Foodspotting, an angel-backed startup, has received attention from the Techcrunch, Mashable, The Wall Street Journal and CNN blogs and was named one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites of 2010.
Before launching Foodspotting in January 2010, Alexa was a User Experience Designer for Adaptive Path, where she helped both startups and established companies create great experiences that improve people’s lives. From redesigning MySpace to conducting the research that underlies the Palm Pre, Alexa has helped clients reimagine products from the ground up.
Following in the footsteps of Adaptive Path colleagues who’ve started their own UX-driven ventures, Alexa looks forward to drawing upon her interest in how companies can achieve business goals and improve people’s lives by appealing to core motivations and needs.
Through speaking, writing and teaching, Alexa strives to advance experience-minded thinking and methods to all who will listen. Recent appearances include WebVisions, Big Omaha, SXSW, the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco and New York, UX Week and LIFT in South Korea.
