Hey, I’m Kaleem.
During my Human-Computer Interaction Master’s program at Carnegie Mellon, I focused on user experience design and user research—undertaking rigorous coursework and projects. I learned a great deal through osmosis and working with talented designers.
I’ve worked on a variety of things.
I make stuff.
Food, music, products—whatever it is, I take pride in crafting things with great care and attention to detail.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep my team productive.
Hustling to investigate technical issues. Hacking a script to analyze some data. Thinking through an interaction by creating wireframes. Running a quick and dirty usability study to look for an insight. Just name it.
I’m a firm believer of Kaizen.
Or continuous improvement. I strive to balance reaction with reflection, and have learned from both success and failure. One of my biggest failures taught me the importance of user-centered design in creating products.
I'd like to think I’m chill.
If we hang out, we’ll likely spend time messing with hardware synthesizers, cook gourmet food, check out a gallery opening, debate the design of a product or spend hours digging dusty vinyl crates in record stores. Did I mention live music shows?
