I’m currently a second-year graduate student in Interaction Design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If all goes well, I will be graduating in May 2013. This year, most of my time will be devoted to writing my graduate thesis on creativity. Previously, I studied Cognitive Neuroscience at Brown University, but learned about interaction design when I discovered the IxDA website after graduation. I worked as a Project Manager and Design Lead at a web development agency based in Chicago before coming back to school.
I consider myself both a native of Hong Kong and Chicago, two incredibly exciting and dynamic cities I’ve been fortunate to call home. In my spare time, I enjoy riding my road bike, trying new kinds of street food while traveling, playing videogames, and working on personal projects.

Tools of the Trade

  • 0.38mm Uniball Signo DX Black Gel Pens – The pen that I stockpile refills for in case if they ever stop making them. It puts down a precise line, never skips, and doesn’t bleed.
  • Zebra Mildliner Highlighters – I’ve always thought regular highlighter colors were garish. These double as color markers for me and don’t bleed through the paper. Also, it comes with a gray which is very useful for shading and roughing out ideas and developing on top of them.
  • Cachet Wirebound Sketchbook – Paper weight is perfect and the elastic closure and hard backing cinches it.
  • Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse – Because work + play can coexist.
  • Wacom Intuos Tablet – Great for detail work and sketching on the computer.
