Director of Design, Cloud Apps
Everyone has a personal history. Happy growth, as well as formative struggles and insecurities mold and teach us how to navigate our day-to-day. As a California-born Korean kid, Frank will talk about his experience as a second generation American, and how early questions of assimilation and identity, and subsequent phases of introspection and self-reckoning shaped his career and perspective on effective teams, leadership, and succession.
Frank is a Director of Design for Cloud Apps, overseeing UX for Gmail, Chat, Google+, Groups, and other emerging products. Previously as Head of Design at Lyft, he was a member of the original team that built the v1 and would go on to lead the product design teams responsible for each version of the product through 2018. With prior posts at LinkedIn and Yahoo!, Frank’s experience has traversed consumer content and social networking, to transportation and marketplaces, settling now into enterprise software.
Beyond the workplace, he’s a husband, a dad to two hilarious girls, and principal frisbee-thrower for Arial, the family Boston terrier.
