WHO AM I

One is alive as long as he is remembered

With 10+ years of experience working in New York City to San Francisco and now Singapore, I've almost seen it all in the design world. I've worked with Twitter, Pinterest, Yahoo, and now Grab. I was an adjunct professor at CCA in San Francisco and have lectured in China for ACG.

Some notable projects such I've worked on are the Bay Lights, Gaspar Brasserie, San Francisco’s Park System SFPark, and GrabFood. My journey has taken me from designing within the Western world ideals to now learning and adapting to Southeast Asia’s culture and technology.

User Research

I've spoken at the following conferences such as Tech in Asia, UX+, UX Strat Asia, IXDC Beijing, Google Developer Conference Philippines, and more.

On the side I run a podcast called Traces which dissects how technology and design impacts culture in developing countries. I'm also a concert photographer for Impose Magazine and have covered multiple festivals and artists such as Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Warped Tour, Treasure Island Festival, The Weeknd, Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, Chance the Rapper, and more.

SELECTED WORKS

Here are a few of my favorite projects I've worked on. 

Ican only show so much work and details as I am working on some projects that are sensitive. Contact me to see more of my portfolio work if you're interested. I'm a UX and Visual designer but I also dabble in many other things. Please don't be intimidated by that.

Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.

Proud of being a multidisciplinary designer.
