As a creative who loves to explore, play, and design, I am a passionate, adventurous, and conscientious designer with a diverse cultural background as well as various technical expertises.
Design is an integral part of my life; I play with my food, explore all kinds of subjects through my travels, and curate everything around me with my design processes and sensibility. Something I would do to learn new dishes is to research 5+ recipes of the same dish, make and taste-test each one of them and then create my own variations using sometimes very Asian influences, other times European techniques. Similarly, I explore CMF for products in the same fashion, develop concepts through creative strategies, and validate prototypes with rigorous iterative processes.
Through my many travels in Asia, Central & North America, and Europe, I have immersed myself in very diverse cultures, seen how people live their lives and use their products, and learned how different cultures have tremendous potential to cross-pollinate. I have also seen social injustices and poverty that have yet to be resolved. In order to create comprehensive and viable solutions that could enhance experiences with lasting values, I enjoy and excel in collaborating with various stakeholders and experts of diverse backgrounds. Being a designer, I want to better the lives of people, bring joy to their lives by designing conscientious products and experiences with them.
