User Experience Design Manager, Samsung Design America

For the last five years, Michelle Koza has been an advocate for socially responsible design development in the consumer electronics industry.  Her grassroots effort began five years ago at the Sony Design Center where she saw an opportunity to combine her passion for the environment with her knowledge of technology.  The end result was Sony’s 2007 concept product series “odo,” five different devices powered by kinetic energy that tap into children’s creativity and curiosity.  Koza is currently the user experience design manager at Samsung Design America, where she continues to advocate for sustainable design strategy and planning and socially responsible product development.
