Why design?

I initially was a front-end developer, but once I started working in design, I realized the power of an effective and delightful experience created for a well-understood target audience. I hope to spend my career to bring value to products with timeless impact by applying creative human-centered solutions as a designer.


Art Making & Programming

I love making sense out of complexity and using design to methodically utilize and creativity. I enjoy using iterative design process to define and rethink what is possible, through my software development, art-making, and now user research and design.

Below are some of my passion projects outside of work.
