Hi, I’m Stephen!

I’m a Software Engineer turned Product Designer studying at USC.


At USC I cofounded Spark SC – we connect and empower passionate student entrepreneurs and makers on campus through initiatives like 1000 Pitches and Startup Career Fair. I also helped found USC Hackers, where I directed branding and design and organized weekly Hack Nights. I ♥ teaching, and I’ve mentored and led workshops on both design and web development as an instructor at HackSC and as a teaching assistant at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.

Previously, I’ve worked at Sony Interactive Entertainment and at Ponder, designing and building digital products. Currently, I’m leading a small product team to launch TechLA, an internships platform for Los Angeles startups backed by Upfront Ventures.

When I’m not designing, coding, or experimenting with pourover coffee, I can sometimes be found playing shows in the city with Bazaar Ensemble on saxophone. I write and perform original music, some of which you can find on my SoundCloud. I take photos – my client work can be found here and I occasionally chronicle my own adventures over on Instagram.

Want to say hi? Get in touch at hello@stephenc.me or shoot me a tweet! I’m also currently available for freelance work.
