Hello! My name is Hy (pronounced: hee) and I'm a Product Designer with deep interests in Motion Design and Augmented Reality, among other emerging immersive technologies. I'm currently completing my Master's program in Human-Computer Interaction + Design (MHCI+D) at University of Washington.
Originally from Saigon, Vietnam, I moved to the States and attended Illinois Wesleyan University studying Marketing, Psychology, and Computer Science. After graduating from college, I ventured to the Bay Area and worked in Marketing Analytics at Ubisoft while designing freelance for Vietnamese and Vietnamese American non-profits. My interdisciplinary background, exposure to varied industries, and multicultural formative years have allowed me to think critically beyond forms and aesthetics, weaving technical knowledge, business strategies, and user-centered principles into my products.
When I'm not making system maps or tweaking motion curves, you can find me learning new cinematography techniques, taking hip-hop dance classes, or playing indie video games.
