Meet Lee-Sean Huang

Professor Lee-Sean Huang is an Adjunct Instructor at NYU, The New School, and the School of Visual Arts. He’s also a designer, a podcaster, an educator outside of the classroom, and a practitioner of capoeira, a Brazilian martial art disguised in dance.

Lee-Sean was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. He was the first member of his family to complete their undergraduate studies in the United States -- he attended Arizona State for a year before transferring to and graduating from Harvard.

After graduation, Lee-Sean taught English in Japan for three years and then worked in non-profit communications for several groups in New York, including Human Rights Watch. Missing teaching, he enrolled in the Master’s program in interactive media design at NYU so that he could return to the classroom at the college level. While teaching since 2011, he’s consulted for the United Nations Department of Political Affairs and founded Foossa, a design and strategy consultancy focused on service design and community-building where he also teaches workshops about design, storytelling, and entrepreneurship.

Lee-Sean’s teaching experiences includes intro-level web design, masters-level design thinking and storytelling at NYU and a master’s level design and social innovation course at the School of Visual Arts. Lee-Sean also designed the curriculum and teaches online courses for the Design Leadership for Business certificate program at The New School.
