Who dis?

I’m glad you want to know me better :)
Don’t worry, I’ll keep it short. Only the important stuff ✨
Oh, hi there! Look at us, already getting along. Who would have thought? Not me!
My name is Anshuman Dhar, I also go by “the most enthusiastic and curious in the room” (something my peers call me fondly 😌)

Five years ago, I came across behavioural psychology and that became my portal into design. Everything I’ve ever worked on since, is driven by understanding how people think. Followed by making something for them and observing their response.

This journey led me to Seattle, where I’m currently pursuing my master’s in Human Computer Interaction + Design. Most recently, I was at Samsung on their AI and Voice UX team.

There’s a lot more I haven’t mentioned here! Feel free to call, text or email me (all the info is right here ↓ )
Instead, if you just want to ease into it — start off with observing my life — you can find me on any of the usual social platforms.

Working with Me

What to expect if you’re working with me.
  • I do whatever it takes to get something done.
    Ok that sounds like a threat, but I really mean that I’m resourceful and dependable. The things I don’t already know, I learn quick.
  • Clear communication is something I deeply believe in.
    I’ve seen too many meetings and products turn into dumpster fires... simply because people weren’t on the same page.
  • I believe in calling a spade a spade.
    I don't like beating around the bush and wasting the time of everyone involved.
What others have to say (completely independent of my charm🤞🏽)
