I'm hahatango

(aka aaron tang)
I am a creative.... a designer, artist, musician, tech addict, foodie, conference junkie, visualizer, inventor, educator, disruptor, ideas enthusiast, events planner, love ultimate frisbee and tennis, am Cantonese, grew up in Kansas, and have a blog at Designverb though I just post to the Facebook page now after too many hacks.

I create objects, interfaces, experiences, spaces, methods, services, brands, events, and at times ideas I can't describe. I love creative new ideas!

I studied at RISD for Industrial Design, Harvard's GSD about information space, the MIT Media Laboratory about tangible media and smart cities, then became a researcher for the MIT Design Lab: Mobile Experience Laboratory . I've worked for Sony, Design Continuum, Herbst Lazar Bell, Siemens Medical, Invivia, TED, several start-ups big corporations, and most recently at litl working for a serial entrepreneur rethinking, disrupting, and launching many new companies.

Upon a global executive promotion I decided to leave my Dream job to start my own dream, but before doing so I'm taking on some long over due projects.

1)Travel the World to learn.
- I Said Go.com
- Instagram Jump Posts.

2) Side Projects:
- Research on Handiness
- Lamp Company
- Book on Creative Art Projects

Then I will be going 1000% on the Start Up enabling people to "Access Experience" to solve simple problems.

I've played the violin for 15+ years, been on two TV shows (ABC's American Inventor and PBS's Everyday Edisons), I was 1 of 100 artist selected worldwide to design a shoe for Converse Join RED, designed a Timbuk2 Charity Bag. I also organized TEDxCambridge.com themed "How do you eat" in 2011, I have reviewed portfolios for RISD several years am often a guest critic at RISD presentations, and take part in several other spontaneous fun projects so feel free to contact me.
