I grew up in Shanghai and moved to New Jersey during grade school. I've been raised in the States since.

I’m an experience designer practicing UX design, ethnographic research, and product strategy

I majored in Industrial Design at RISD, with studies in interaction design from UdK Berlin. The most valuable lesson I learned was that design is most impactful when amplified through interdisciplinary processes.

Currently, I get to apply that lesson everyday working with policymakers, researchers, and fellow designers to solve problems on massive scales.

Outside of work, I'm usually thinking about urban spaces 🌆, on the rocks 🧗, or sawing wood 🪚 .
