I am passionate about creating user-centered technology products and have experience in VR and AR technology combined with special education, APP & web and medical product design.
‍
In terms of design thinking, I am an agile and meticulous thinker and executor, also good at thinking from different perspectives to come up with more effective solutions.
‍
Curiosity makes me a better designer!
In addition to work, I like to go to river tracing and hiking at various places with friends, as well as reading books and watching all kinds of videos and series. I always get a lot of inspiration from these!

My Values

Always Learning

I always put myself in a position for growth, which allows me to keep a more positive mindset and enjoy learning in this ever-changing industry.

Be Open-Minded

A mentor told me "don't look at the world through your own eyes". This mindset guided me to think more about the user's various situations & problems.

Passionate about everything

Not just work, but I always put my energy into everything I love, make things more meaningful, and cherish every moment.

What am I doing outside of work?

In addition books and movies, I enjoy outdoor activities with friends, such as swimming, river tracking, surfing and hiking. In 2020, I fell in love with river tracking. It is a challenging sport that requires teams to help each other and observe the surrounding terrain during the journey. Along the way, I always get a lot of beautiful scenery and enjoy greetings to strangers, which is one of the ways I get inspired!
