Hi, I'm Nickki Nguyen.

I'm a UX Designer based in Oakland, California, currently looking for opportunities in New York City! Previously I worked at Google, HP, and a small headphone startup called Wearhaus.

How I got into design: Neopets, Myspace, Xanga, Deviantart, manga, and scrapbooking.

Most likely to: get lost, have a cup of iced coffee in hand, buy shoes I don’t need, rewatch Brooklyn Nine Nine

Future goals and dreams: become an art director, lead a team, have a dog named Jack, own something from West Elm, enjoy hiking
