David Shin



Glendale, CA

David is a third year studying Cognitive Science with a specialization in Design & Interaction along with a minor in Interdisciplinary Computing and Arts. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he has accustomed himself well to life down south in sunny San Diego. While initially going down the path of economics and law, David realized that his imagination and creative input were most important in chasing a future career, leading him to switch into CogSci Design.


David has always had an appreciation for the look of everyday things, spawning his passion for design. He hopes to explore design through many different disciplines as the years progress whether that be concert graphics, set design, or UI/UX. That is not to say that David limits himself to the field of design, as he is exploring possible careers in food, entrepreneurship, and marketing. His experiences extend from working at his hometown City Hall to being a marketing intern for an affordable luxury start-up. Whatever it be, David hopes to instill positive thinking in the environment that he works in.


In his free time, David enjoys going on food crawls, skateboarding, Zumba, and curating his Spotify playlists. From rock climbing to solving crossword puzzles, he is constantly picking up new hobbies. David strongly holds that spontaneous adventures are the best adventures and has been able to explore that greatly since joining AKPsi.
