Hello again, my name is Imran Saif. I live in Chennai and work at Optum as a UX designer.
As a kid, I loved sketching, studied psychology because I wanted to understand how people think, learned human-computer interaction because I was intrigued by computers. All of the past shaped me to realise my north star was to build products and understand people and perspectives.
Beyond work, I enjoy volunteering for a cause, sharing my thoughts on design, speaking at Toastmasters clubs and some amateur mobile photography. I'm Norman's cognitive design practitioner, I believe complexity is good, it is confusion that is bad.
