Hey, I'm Ryan.

I’m curious about how technology is shaping our society and our behaviors. Being a product designer allows me to dive into this topic and make an impact with my skills. To better understand how the technology works, I taught myself coding to learn from the developers' perspective.

I have earned Best Use of Sketch on Eduhacks Hackathon 2017. My portfolio has been featured on Bestfolios. On the side, I’m working with my friends to build out a community for Emily Carr University design students to learn from industry alumni. To keep my creativity going, I love doing photography and riding a fixed gear bike.

I'm currently looking for new opportunities in the SaaS industry. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you think I would be a great fit.
