Based in Los Angeles, and originally from China, I am a graphic designer with strengths in branding, typography and UI design. When I’m not photosynthesizing in the warm glow of my computer, you can find me re-energizing with my friends. Connecting with others allows me to grow as a designer.

Being surrounded by people is my way of connecting with the world. I believe that it’s important to cultivate meaningful relationships through emotions and ideas. I listen with care, observe with empathy, and create solutions that deliver powerful narratives; which has allowed me to flourish, adapt, and grow as a designer.
