Hi, I’m Chalen


I’m a UX designer wearing a lot of hats in San Francisco.

I studied Product Design for a Master's at the University of Georgia.

I'm also a radio DJ, boardgame aficionado, and bicyclist.

After working and learning on smaller teams, I'm looking for an opportunity to grow as part of the design team for a mid-size consumer-facing product.

A wild Chalen appears!
