Hey! ¡Hola! ¿Qué onda?🤙🏼

My name's Andrés Eduardo Hurtado—I'm an Interaction Designer, Design Researcher and Design Strategist who believes in the power of transparent behavior to empower communities. I’m Interested in making the world a more compassionate place through design.


I was born and raised in the U.S./México border of El Paso/Juárez. Growing up with these two converging cultures allowed me to develop a unique perspective. I observed the strengths of folks with diverse racial, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, the struggles they face, and their resilience to conquer them and change the world.


My drive to empower people, with technology as a tool, pushed me to pursue Interaction Design at California College of the Arts. I strive to use my design skills for community building and strengthening.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing around with my phone's camera, and looking at birb and longo memes on IG. You can catch me on the weekends at your local taco truck 🌮.
