Bio — Interested in investigating how people navigate complex systems, I began my Architecture studies at the University of Hong Kong. I later transferred to Parsons School of Design (NY) as UX’s data-driven methodology towards understanding flows and systems resonated with me more. Solving a wider range of problems, and validating solutions with user research also satisfied me greatly. Currently a student majoring in Illustration, I split my time between experimenting with visual communication and working on Web/ App designs.
