I'm Adam Ruf, SF-based full-stack UX Designer, and member of the Design team at Twitch where I help people save time and have fun achieving their streaming goals.
After hours, when I'm not mentoring the next generation of UX designers, I support entrepreneurs with freelance UX strategy and end-to-end design support.
I help teams achieve their product or service design goals through lean user research and design strategy, focusing on rapid prototype development to quickly learn what works, what doesn't, and why.
I also provide mentorship for startups and individual designers growing their design cultures and careers, respectively.
Since my team at Twitch launched a feature for scheduling and sharing events, I've started scheduling design streams ranging from usability testing to visual design and front-end coding.

When we decided to use the 16:9 aspect ratio standard for the Twitch Events feature my team and I launched, I built a simple 16:9 dimensions calculator to help me get the proper dimensions for displaying user-generated images at high-quality.
I wanted a faster way to create attractive user dialogue flows than using Sketch, so I built a simple MVP that allows UX designers to create a dialogue flow between a user and an app and then print to PDF or paper to share with stakeholders.
