As a kid raised in Taiwan, I was always asking, “What if?” and “How come?” I was curious and wanted to make things better. At 17, I moved to Iowa and fell in love with small town America. I loved the culture, the food, the people, the sports, and the fried chicken. I played basketball, was in a musical, I did art, I tried it all. I thought I wanted to be a farmer.
But what I really fell in love with was the element of making. I saw that Industrial Design was an avenue where I could build my ideas and develop my concepts in sporting goods, footwear and accessories. I did UI/UX for HP, created medical devices for Second Sight, exhibited my lounge chair at the Milan furniture show and helped design a prototype for a sign language glove in collaboration with scientists and engineers.
Applying my skills in form development, problem solving, craftsmanship and user experience to my passion in sporting goods, furniture, and interaction design, I am committed to how I can make things, how I can make changes.
