He grew up in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and headed west to attend Otis. Focusing initially on illustration, he decided to pursue graphic design by his senior year. He worked as a print designer before moving to New York in 1998 and dedicating himself to interactive media design. Khoi was a founding partner at the groundbreaking design studio Behavior LLC (www.behaviordesign.com), where he worked with such clients as The Onion, ResortQuest, Smithsonian, and HBO. After four successful years, he became the Design Director of NYTimes.com.
