Create value and impact
through design

I’m a designer, enthusiastic about human-product interaction, sustainability and culture. I believe in design as a systems thinking tool to understand needs, discover opportunities, make decisions, and drive real yet meaningful innovation.

Project Management

Understanding clients as partners, I coordinate the relationship between client and internal team. I work closely with stakeholders to identify intent and purpose, ensuring everyone drive toward shared goals.

Strategy

Based on research and insights, through workshops or qualitative research, I help to define experiences that are meaningful and engaging for the customers, and build visions for business with feasible plan.

Design

Bringing together user needs and business strategy, we generate concepts and narrow down to concrete designs. I multidisciplinarily support from sketches, renderings, prototyping to final implementation.
