Sha Hwang
Design Technologist, Trulia


Sha studied and worked in architecture before diving headfirst into data visualization at Stamen Design. Last year, Sha cofounded a startup called Movity focused on visualization and cities. Movity was recently acquired by the real estate company Trulia to bring their work to a national audience. Sha is endlessly fascinated by maps, data, design, and cities.
