Kalen Wong - Product Designer

A desire to pursue a creative career and a passion for enabling human connection through design & technology moved me from Hong Kong to Seattle in 2000.

My design work includes a collection of both fantasy experience that changed the world we play (Xbox), and reality products (at Microsoft, Google) that changed the way we work.

Beyond user interaction and research, I am interested in big data visualization, illustrations, and any portals that expands creativity and better human experience.

Outside work I use art to create new persectives to life and beauty around us, (www.kalenwong.com) and I develop practical self-defense techniques for women (www.womensmartdefense.com).

From a web designer to program manager, then a detour to graduate school and returned as a product designer, these experiences allow me to approach problems from different perspectives and depth.
