I'm a communication designer based in beautiful Vancouver, BC. I have a keen interest in exploring and discussing social and cultural challenges through design. I believe that design is not just about creating a solution, but also a powerful tool for us to ask questions, to reflect, and to make changes. Inspired by the ability to connect people through design, I thrive in a collaborative team and enjoy cross-disciplinary working. Through creative projects, I hope to help others to achieve positive changes.
When outside of design, I am an enthusiastic student and volunteer at Miao Fa Society (local non-profit), as I continue to learn and to help others to be more mindful of ourselves and our surroundings. Feel free to contact me if you have any project inquiries or want to have a chat.
