Tim Chen has had a very interesting career trajectory, which since he first came to VFS with an Electrical Engineering degree from the U of Calgary and graduated from Digital Design (then called Interactive Media) back in 2004, has led him to Blast Radius, to one of the top 10 MBA Programs in the USA (Businessweek rated) (University of Michigan Stephen M Ross School of Business) to round out his skill set with Business Administration, to interning for a year with Microsoft Advertising Business Group, where since 2010 he has been working full time. Oomph spoke with him recently about his journey:
Oomph : You first graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, can you tell us why you first came to study design at VFS ?
Tim Chen : Believe it or not, I moved to Vancouver after college because I read amazing stories about Blast Radius and really wanted to join the company. I decided that moving to Vancouver and attending VFS to study Design was what I needed to do. The skills I learned and the network I built at VFS helped me achieve my goal — I became part of the amazing design team at Blast Radius. I’ll never forget how as an Interface Development Lead, I worked closely with such a talented Art Director & Creative Director, to deliver Nike Flight Club, an exclusive invitation-only e-commerce channel for Nike Jordan.
