David Kim is an experience designer based in LA. His professional WHY is to inspire good in the world by WHAT he does (designing products/services that meet the needs of the world) and HOW he does (developing people through work instead of getting work done through people). He lives, works and wrestles at the intersections of life as an immigrant from South Korea, a designer with no design background, and an atheist turned believer. He believes the intersections are the best place to worship.
