An SF-based Product Designer who is interested in emerging technologies and social impact. I recently completed my Master’s in Interaction Design(HCI) at California College of the Arts. I have over three years of human-centered design to solve complex problems in diverse domains.

In the past, I studied industrial design, which broadened my design perspective on solving problems for the target user to conceptualize ideas and improve usability by understanding interaction points on digital products.

I want to influence positive and enriching experiences. I am deeply passionate about the experience of cultural diversity in everyday life. I am eager to explore the visual narratives of human beings — through culture, places, and things — and seek to integrate them into my designs with love.
