Thinker, Designer, Doer

I am passionate about learning different technologies to generate new ideas; designing intuitive interactions to delight users. My goal is to cross the chasm between advanced technology and the lives of end-users with my skills and passion.

 

 

I was born in China. With my curiosity to explore the different cultures around the world, I stayed with my relatives in Bangkok Thailand for months; Studied and worked in the US for 7 years; Studied art history in Florence, Italy; Learned traditional papermaking in Tokushima, Japan.  I've also traveled to many countries to explore their cultures, people and food : ).
