Hello friends! I am currently a designer at Microsoft. In May 2017, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University School of Design with a BFA in Communication Design. 
 

My design ethos

I am passionate about designing and crafting meaningful and beautiful experiences, through stories, products, and play. I hope to inspire self-reflections, thought-provoking conversations and community engagement through my work and the voice it gives. Whether through powerful visual narratives, speculative critique, generative social design, or through the lens of design philosophy or technology, I strive to propose alternative ways of perceiving, empowering and shaping culture.

More about me :)

The two things anyone who is a friend of mine will know about me are these:
1. My favourite colour is yellow ever since I was in my mother's womb
2. My favourite animal is the giraffe, which is also awkward and tall like me

I love immersing myself in colours, as well as making with my hands (drawing, crafts, collages, sewing etc.) in order to understand this world and express myself within it. 

Born and raised in Hong Kong, I lived in England for two years, spent four years in Pittsburgh before making a home in Seattle. I love exploring new places and finding new inspirations. Music, writing and reading are also some of the things that help keep me sane. I can be found very happy on a sunny day in autumn, with a good book and my loved ones. Through it all, I always remember to stay grounded in Christ and remain thankful.
