Hey! I’m Ryan, a product designer (currently @ Gopuff) that loves designing for people, products, and the people that build those products.

Basically, I make cool rectangles.

About Ryan

Growing up as a Taiwanese-American kid in Hamburg, my German was pretty bad. I had to find ways to interact with others without language, typically in the form of wild hand gestures.

As a former architect turned product designer, my skillset for creating and communicating great design is constantly evolving. I like to think I've grown past speaking in hand gestures... somewhat ✌️. These days, I connect with people by working on ideas informed by function, influenced by diverse thinking, and focused on the end user.

On the side, I'm probably:
🍜 Finding hidden NYC Chinatown spots and forgetting to bring enough cash
⌨️ Debating if I should build another mechanical keyboard
🎮 Slowly melting into my gaming chair as I grind in Valorant and TFT
