Pipettes to Pixels

Hello, friend! I am a 21-year-old senior at Stanford University. I am looking for a full-time job in UX/UI design.

In January 2013, I decided to leave the premed track to pursue design.

Medicine and design are surprisingly similar.

Both involve

1)    Empathy

2)    Attention to detail

3)    Diagnosis (iterative process of creative problem solving)

4)    Making people happy

Fast forward to March 2013, and I am busy …

1)    Leading UX/UI design for two start-ups

2)    Sculpting brand identity for two musicians

3)    Managing a student-run clinic for uninsured patients (with 200+ revolving volunteers)

4)    Updating my GCal to juggle all these projects at once!

I learn by doing.

You can join my journey at mikang.org. You can learn more about my experience at linkedin.org/in/mikang.

I love late-night conversations, freeform sketching, and progressive house music. I read almost twenty to thirty design links a day. I am an Internet junkie.

My email is mikang@stanford.edu. I'd love to meet you - let's chat!

Cheers,

Michelle
