Hi, I'm Ryan ✌

I'm an experience designer sitting at the intersection of design and technology, integrating the two to create digital products that connect and help people.

Currently creating and designing experiences as a grad student at VCU Brandcenter. Previously, I lived and breathed all things architecture, specializing in computational material fabrication. I think I inhaled a little too much sawdust in the woodshop. Not sure about the long term effects, check in on me please.

Things I think about daily:

🏠 The time my friends and I started a tiny agency. Emphasis on tiny.
🤖 Getting a really bad splinter in my finger, and subsequently 3D printing with wood cellulose so it never happens again.

😤 The person who owns ryanshih.com. I would like to have a word. No, I don't have $1000.

Things I wish I did daily:

🍜 Cook every single "recipe" (list of ingredients) I've saved on my phone.
🎮 Play video games until my pointer finger cramps (add me on Valorant).
⌨️ Watch mechanical keyboard videos on Youtube but not actually build one...

Currently looking for a summer internship~
