02 About me

My name is George Gu. I'm currently a senior at the University of Washington, pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in Informatics and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, Language and Literature. My area of study focuses on Human Computer Interaction (HCI). I propose that design is a language. It visualizes our thinking and makes sense of our intelligence.
