It wouldn't hurt to try the UX field to see what you think of it from your own perspective/experience. I wrote about my own career in the field, but your experience might be much different.
I would try partnering with 1 or 2 people on a small project (product, UX or otherwise) to work through some of the process and go from there.
Hope that helps! If not, feel free to send over some more details and I can try and help further.
