Alisan is a truly talented designer, leader, and teacher. I had the pleasure of working with Alisan on a multiphase project, where he skillfully lead our team of interaction designers, visual designers, and technologists through user research and into design.

Justin Lee
Interaction Designer

Alisan's always-helpful personality and open-door attitude gave stakeholders an easy-to-access command center for all things relating to user interaction. The same attributes helped him to diplomatically resolve both client-company disputes as well as teammate conflicts. His experience and passion for human psychology would often help add insight to design, for an accessible and more human friendly end result.
