About me

I am currently a Master’s student at Carnegie Mellon University majoring Entertainment Technology.  With background in digital media arts and digital film production, I’m passionate about interactive experience design and UX design in order to connect people with the power of storytelling through new media.

With rich experience in directing and producing film projects, I consider myself as a good storyteller and a strong team-worker. Feeling limited by traditional narration and creative methods, I find interactive media and emerging technologies to be fascinating. I start my journey in this world through creating a couple of interactive experience projects in platforms such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. At CMU, I'm studying and gaining experience in user research, ideation, rapid prototyping, usability testing, and project management. 

 

“Design creates stories, and stories create memorable experiences, and great experiences have this innate ability to change the way in which we view our world.” Combining my knowledge and passions, I aim to design and produce compelling experiences for human being.
