Make it simple, but significant

My name is Lyon and I am a Product Designer based in Los Angeles.

Before I became a Designer, I was working in corporate Human Resources. Through my tenure in HR, I was able to hone my skills in communication, strategy, and empathy. HR was also what lead me to pursue a career in design.

As a part of their day-to-day, most HR professionals will learn how to use digital HR tools. Whenever I used any of those tools, I would always think to myself: “This could be a better experience”. One day, that same thought transformed into a question: “How would I have designed this tool?” It was from there on, I began to gain an interest in design. That interest grew enough that I decided to enroll in General Assembly and take their UX program.

I was working at Disney within their Parks, Experiences, and Products division on the Food and Beverage team. Due to COVID-19 in 2020, I was unfortunately laid off in December 2020. Prior to Disney, I worked as a freelance UX Designer for various companies that included agencies and start-ups. I’ve worked on projects ranging from website redesigns, applications, and chatbots. Through my work, I always strive to provide people the best experience through the simplest solutions.
