About

My Background

Originally from Hong Kong and the Philippines, I currently live and work in sunny Los Angeles. I come from a traditional graphic design background, but found my true passion in creating digital interactions.

I spend my free time learning new things, volunteering at an animal shelter, and being a dungeon master for DnD. I've been trying my hardest to not draw dead fish.

Work Experience

I’ve worked as a designer at Within since 2017, working on everything from VR experiences to design installations at Sundance.

Prior to that, I was an intern at Weebly and (add)ventures. I was also a design lead for Hack@Brown and a teaching assistant at both Brown University, Computer Science and the Rhode Island School of Design.

Education

I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Graphic Design and a concentration in Media, Cultural, and Technology Studies. I also took classes at Brown University.
