I'm Richard Urbina

A UX Designer and UCSD ‘20 Alumni where I majored in Cognitive Science w/ specialization in Human-Computer Interaction. I am currently living in Los Angeles, CA where I lived most of my life and enjoy its culture.

My passion for design is motivated by crafting engaging user experiences for all users and bringing those connections that allows them to enjoy the product. I had always seen myself to enjoy the engagement that comes from the psychology of user interactions with technology.
