Daniel Yim

Hello, my name is Daniel Yim. While I was growing up, we moved a lot, up and down the coast of California. I was always adapting to new towns, new schools. I learned to surf, snowboard, and how to survive the gang-ridden towns of the 90’s. I became someone who felt the need to protect those that couldn’t protect themselves. Joining the Marine Corps at 22, I learned as a Sergeant and a squad leader how to adapt and overcome, how to lead by taking the initiative and how to make critical decisions during stressful situations. 

Becoming a Product Designer has allowed me to harness my professional experiences and my deep empathy for people who survive in extreme situations. Whether I’m creating shelter for LA’s homeless nomads or a robot that will replace TSA, finding solutions entails an attack from every direction, the research, feasibility testing, and prototyping. I constantly strive to create applications and services that will directly impact our quality of life.
