Hi, I'm Ngoc (pronounced like "now").

Like the simplified pronunciation of my name, I like to live in the moment. And when it comes to crafting meaningful user experiences, every moment matters.  

I studied Information Systems and Marketing during undergrad, where I learned that technological competencies and understandings of human behavior were equally important. From stints in marketing research to journalism and web design, I then came across user experience and was fascinated by the premise of this field. This led me to pursue a Master of Science in Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. 

I'm a firm believer that technology alone cannot make a difference but when people are equipped with the right tools, the results are powerful. But it's not all work and no play - you can probably catch me tackling a DIY project, going for a run around the city, or laughing along with my favorite stand-up comedians.

Have questions or comments about my work? Let's connect!
