Growing up Taiwanese-American in Hamburg, Germany, I used to find weird ways to communicate without a common language, wildly gesticulating over broken German.

These days, as a former architect turned product designer, I think I've grown past speaking in hand gestures... sometimes✌️. As I evolve as a designer, I now connect with people working on ideas informed by function, influenced by diverse thinking, and focused on the end user.

On the side, I'm probably:
🍜 Trying out hidden NYC Chinatown spots
⌨️ Debating if I should build another mechanical keyboard
🎮 Slowly melting in dejection as I lose in Teamfight Tactics
