Jeffrey Houng

Product Design & Experience Strategist

jhoung@andrew.cmu.edu

Jeff is currently completing his undergraduate degree in Product Design at Carnegie Mellon University. As a naturally curious individual, Jeff has explored many different interests that inform his design; resulting in experience from designing connected children’s toys, visual design for the German Transatlantic Climate Bridge, to user experience and product strategy for SYMKALA. With a critical mind and a passion for problem solving, Jeff manifests his design in Product-Service systems focusing on issues pertaining to people, communities, and their interactions with the surrounding environments. Striving to display a mutualistic relationship between products, systems, and people; to look into our future; and to create seamless, behavior altering experiences. 

Craving to make a real impact in an age of senseless innovation, Jeff loves to work with passionate people to bring forth his unique and eclectic perspective and thinking. 
 
Fueled on creativity, curiosity, and cortados, Jeff is an avid creator, tinkerer, and explorer. Therefore, outside of work he can be found cycling down busy roads or up muddy mountains, checking off a national park on his list, trying various obscure parts of animals from different cuisines, and taking apart Easy Bake Ovens for fun.  

Jeff is originally from New Jersey, and now calls Pittsburgh home with his beautiful wife and baby boy.
