My life Mantra is to "Stay Curious".
I am a creative.... a designer,
artist, musician, tech addict, foodie, conference
junkie, visualizer, inventor, educator, disruptor, ideas enthusiast,
events planner, love ultimate frisbee and tennis, am Cantonese, grew up
in Kansas, and have an inactive blog at Designverb
switching to a Facebook
page after too many monthly hacks.
I create objects, interfaces, experiences, spaces, methods, services, brands, events, and at times ideas I can't describe.
I studied at RISD for
Industrial Design, Harvard's
GSD about information space, the MIT
Media Laboratory about Tangible Media and Smart Cities, then became
a researcher for the MIT Design Lab:
Mobile Experience Laboratory . I've worked for Sony, Design Continuum, Herbst Lazar Bell, Siemens Medical, Invivia, TED, big corporations, many startups, and most recently at litl working for a serial entrepreneur rethinking and launching
many new companies.
Upon a global executive promotion I decided to leave my Dream job
to start my own dream, but before doing so I Traveled the World to relearn.
(Initially 2018, but on Dec 27th 2017 I surgically died, and 2018 is focused recovery)
I've played the violin for 15+ years, been on two TV shows (ABC's American Inventor and PBS's Everyday Edisons), I was 1 of 100 artist selected worldwide to design a shoe for Converse Join RED, designed a Timbuk2 Charity Bag. I also organized TEDxCambridge.com themed "How do you eat" in 2011, I have reviewed portfolios for RISD several years, am often a guest critic, and take part in several other projects so feel free to contact me.
