Hi there! My name is Eunsang Oh, but please call me Louis. I am Korean American and currently temporarily based in Chicago.
In school, I studied journalism but I am aiming to taking my storytelling training into the realm of designing experiences. As a storyteller, I have an eclectic skillset that includes video and audio production as well as visual communication design. Solid writing and editing is at the basis of all these things but I am more than a wordsmith. Finding joy in solving problems beyond just reporting on them, I have sought out to gain experience and training in design thinking and research. My graduate studies were in Media Innovation, which looked beyond the art of storytelling and into innovating the structures, systems and technology around it. Product development and research in the media space is my specialty.
Broadly speaking, my goals in life is to take my storytelling background and further training in product development and experience design to create systems, environments and products that help people solve real human problems. Modern life is so complex–and only getting more so–that it is near impossible for most average humans to make the kind of good decisions they wish to make if only they were empowered to do so. I want to help make the world seem a little simpler, kinder or clearer in the right ways. I want to work to bridge the growing gap between technology and humanity so we make the most out of the gifts we create. I believe stories have the power to do this and must be employed with strategic deftness and empathetic care.
