Leslie Herring

Product Design + Usability Lead

Leslie is originally from Greeley, Colorado, best known for its large Independence Day rodeo. She has called the Bay Area her home since attending the Academy of Art University for college, where she graduated with a B.F.A. in Web Design & New Media.

Web design has been her passion since she first taught herself how to code HTML as a teenager, but she’s been an artist ever since she was a toddler. In her home, her grandmother still proudly displays a lopsided, colored pencil drawing of a cat that Leslie drew when she was ten. Her current interests still include cats (and other animals), but also fashion, photography, film, reading, and writing.

Leslie first joined the First Person team as an intern in 2010, eventually stepping into her role as Interactive Designer to help create websites and apps.
