About me

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my design portfolio.

 

I am Usayed, a designer with a wide spectrum of experience in UX, HCI, Industrial and Product Design.

I'm currently a Principal UX Designer at Walmart and feel grateful for the opportunity to positively impact millions of lives around the world.

My cultural roots are from Bangladesh and I am now a U.S. citizen residing in Austin, TX. I've got a Master's degree in Human Computer Interaction and a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Design.

 

I love hiking, photography, playing guitars and spending quality time with my family and friends.

Below are some highlights (and trivia) of the past few years of my life :)
