Hi, I’m Alvin. I'm a 21 year old Interaction Designer and Entrepreneur from Silicon Valley.
I’m a graduating senior this year at UCLA. I strive to design clean user interfaces and beautifully simple user experiences.
I’m the type of person who never stops learning and growing. Everyday I wake up and get excited about pursuing my passions in interaction design, entrepreneurship, and investing.
I pride myself as someone who approaches problems holistically with a set of both qualitative and quantitative analytical skills. I seek out challenges and take effort in applying the principles of sound data analysis to almost everything I do.
The intersection of our online and offline worlds fascinates me — I’m currently testing ways to influence user behavior and crowd mechanics by leveraging non-monetary, social incentives with an iPhone app called SceneShot.
Some other topics I find intellectually stimulating are behavioral finance, augmented reality, human-computer interaction, wearable computing, brain-computer interfaces, genetic engineering, and transhumanism.
Other than that – I’m a pretty normal dude. I love college basketball, high-performance sports cars, and spontaneous adventures. In my free time, I like to hit the gym, discover new music, eat good food, and travel the world (15 countries and counting!).
