Work & Writing Samples

Official Xbox Support Website

Help for Xbox games & apps

  • A new hub that I designed to display troubleshooting content for games, apps, and services. Alongside this, I redesigned the Games & apps browse page to help customers more effectively navigate content through browsing/scrolling by extrapolating that troubleshooting content and refining the focus of the page. 

Gaming for the whole family 

  • A hub that I helped design to display some of our most meaningful support content for family and online safety settings. 

Connect with friends in party chat

  • I redesigned this article to include more info about what party chat is, explain how you can set up safety settings, and added support for party chat on other devices. 

What is doxing on Xbox? 

  • A new article I produced to educate the Xbox community about doxing threats, behaviors, and how to secure your private information. 

Talking to your family about messaging safety 

  • A new article I produced to help coach families and households through discussing online safety and privacy with loved ones, as well as ways to build trust and use Xbox safety settings to ensure everyone plays safe.  

Manage a member's safety settings to access Minecraft features 

  • A new article I produced to help adults manage safety settings so that members of their household can access different Minecraft features safely. This was a major traffic driver to our platform, with most of the info buried in other articles.

  • A new article I produced to guide members of the Xbox community who are struggling with a mental health crisis or want to know what resources and tips they can use to help their friends.
