Hi, I’m Chaz, a product designer at Haloo building experiences for an AI powered tool.

I enjoy expanding and adapting my thinking, skillset, and processes to meet the evolving challenges and needs of the world around us. I thrive in ambitious, proactive teams that prioritize ethical product development and foster a culture of belonging.

Collaboration is at the heart of my design practice. I thrive on the energy of diverse teams, combining our expertise to tackle complex challenges. I'm driven to craft pixel-perfect designs that not only look visually appealing but also ensure a seamless user experience. I believe design's impact extends beyond the digital realm, tackling problems across various domains to create meaningful, holistic solutions.

When I'm not tinkering with shapes and lines in Figma, I enjoy playing competitive games, watching esports, exploring the city's newest restaurants and cafes, and shopping at cool clothing boutiques

This is not me, I'm working on my own!

Level Up: Embracing Competitive Challenges

If I’m not designing, sleeping, or eating, you can find me playing games or consuming some form of gaming content. I love playing competitive games like Valorant and keeping up with esports. I also enjoy playing more casual games like Stardew Valley with my partner.

Gaming is a key component of my identity. What I enjoy most is strategizing to outplay and outsmart my opponents, I try to understand the opponents way of thinking similar understanding user needs and behaviours. Currently I am Ascendant 1 in Valorant.

From Joysticks to Digital Design

I’ve been playing games since I was 6 years old on my first computer (Aladdin was my favourite). Growing up, I spent an unhealthy amount of hours playing MapleStory every day. Gaming has always been a way for me to connect with people and it brings people together.

As a kid, I was obsessed with technology – computers, video games, iPods (which might reveal my age a bit). Along with this tech fascination, I spent a lot of time binge-watching anime and reading manga. The art styles fascinated me, and I began trying to draw my favourite characters. That mix of loving tech and being creative led me to become a product designer. Now I combine my tech know-how with my knack for making things look awesome to create design solutions.

What I’m listening to

My music taste is super diverse ranging from classic hip-hop to high-energy K-pop. I have a deep love for music and attending live concerts; in 2023 I went to 5 live shows. Check out a couple of snaps from my favourite ones below.

I believe design is…

A transformative force that has guided me to discover and pursue my career path with a newfound passion and purpose.

More than visual aesthetics; it encompasses an array of elements, making it a holistic and multifaceted discipline.

A powerful tool to bring people together, serving as a facilitator that forges connections and fosters unity among diverse individuals and communities.

At its core a compelling storyteller, weaving narratives that evoke emotions and forge memorable experiences.
