/ / about me

Hi. I think by now you know my name is Jon Chen (it's pretty big up at the top). I honestly don't really know what to put in this section, but it seems to be an imperative to all sites, so here it is

I hope you got a chance to see my portfolio above, it's a random collection of coding, design, and iterative design work both with school and on my own. I guess a little about me is that I am a recent graduate from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Cognitive Science specializing in HCI. I went in as a bio major, decided that I lacked a lot of interest in the health sciences, and decided to go into a more design and computing focused major and voila! Found cognitive science, a beautiful harmony of neuroscience, programming, and design.

At some point I read Don Norman's Design of Everyday Things, and since then I've really enjoy finding everyday tasks that are difficult for the everyday person to do (ie. watching people have trouble opening doors, turning things on, etc.) and this really led to my interest in information architecture and user experience, as I've always had a strong interest in photography.

I really enjoy macro and landscape photography, anything related to the outdoors, and playing praise music on my guitar. Please, feel free to browse around. I know it's not much, but it's all coming :)
