About me

I’m from Baoji Shaanxi, China, the city where people love to eat spicy handmade noodles. Now I live in Jersey City, NJ with my husband and a small dog, MiuMiu. 

I'm passionate about solving complex problems and designing products to empower users. Prior to studying at SVA, I worked with startup companies to identify target audiences, design frameworks, and deliver consistent solutions, ranging from developing site maps, and processing flows, to make wireframes, and building interaction prototypes.

At SVA

I have learned user experience design in physical computing, coding, and to frame user experience in order to tackle problems in a systematic way.

I'm also honing my coding skills and I enjoy working on different prototyping tools to demonstrate design solutions. 

I have a diverse background. In my free time, I’m an advanced skiier. Every weekend in winter, I get up early and I am excited about going on ski trips. The intensity and challenge of learning all the proper moves turned me into an avid skiier. This passion encouraged me to travel, and I could excel at something both fun and very challenging.

On a personal note

I backpacked through seventeen countries in six continents, as a way to understand people's stories and experience diverse cultures. I volunteered as a Teaching Assistant in Cape Town South Africa, worked as an organic farmer in Nice, and an assistant manager of a fruit garden in Hamilton, New Zealand. Having done that, my interest and curiosity made me become a UX designer. This wide range of experience has bolstered my ability to approach design problems with a deep sense of empathy and endless curiosity.
