Nice to meet you & let's connect!

Hi! I am a Chinese-Canadian UI/UX Designer based in Japan with 5 years of designing experiences. I am passionately curious about design and IT, and I enjoy turning complex problems into simple, user-friendly, and beautiful design experiences.

About Me.

My journey in design began during my high school years, where I served as the Yearbook Editor/Designer in grade 11. My passion for design then led me to my first professional career in 2016 as a Channel Marketing Specialist at Microsoft Canada. There, I developed my skills in creating compelling advertisement designs, banners, and brochures across various channels.


I always knew that I was interested about Japanese culture and designs, and enrolled in a master program at Kyoto University. Later, I joined SAP Japan as a UX Designer. For the past 3 years and 10 months, I have worked at SAP, creating seamless user experiences (mobile, web, immersive experience, 3D and etc.) for our customers. During my time here, I was exposed to many different industry, finance, retail, HR, education, energy, government etc., and it has been a wonderful learning experience for me. And ever since, I have absolutely loved interacting with end users, understanding their challenges and pain points, conducting user research, and building the desirable and engaging software solutions that solve business problems.
