I hail from Venice Beach, California. I've had 7+ years of experience as a Product Designer in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I love photography, swimming, biking, camping and learning languages. I can speak, read and write Mandarin.
Random fun fact about me: “Into the Wild” is one of my favorite books. Here’s a photo of me tapping into my love of hiking, and river crossing. =]
