TO DISCOVER

I'm a designer and creative thinker with a deep interest in designing experiences that remodels human behaviors and interpersonal interactions. I was born in China and studied communication and design in the US. I'm in my second year at School of Visual Arts in New York pursuing an MFA in Interaction Design.

My set of UX design methods equips my insightfulness and thoughtfulness, which enables me to deliver persuasive work.
