A bit more about me ✌️

It all started when I was 6 years old. Moving from China to Canada without knowing a single word in English, I relied on visual storytelling through doodles as my only form of to communication.

Visual storytelling mixed with my naturally curious personality eventually became more than just a passion when discovered the field of HCI. The industry allows me to collaborate with talented individuals to continuously expand on my interests; whether that be honing my visual craft, understanding the jargon of code, or bringing diversified perspectives to the table.

When I'm not designing, I can be found jamming out (to music and complex problems) at cafes β˜•οΈ, with friends at happy hour πŸ₯‚, or enjoying walks outdoors 🌱.

Okay, that's enough about me. Let's talk about you! Shoot me an e-mail and send some music recommendations as a convo starter πŸ˜€
