Daniel Kramer
Based in Orange County, CA I've created a life that intersects my passions for design, education, and automotive. I find these fields fulfilling because of their positive impact on people's lives.
I'm a Product Designer at Dealerware, designing digital experiences and creating meaningful org impact. When I'm not at my day job, I work on developing undergraduate and graduate-level design courses where I'm a Lecturer at The University of Texas at Austin.
