About

I've always been curious about people and our relationships with various aspects of the world.


I love to translate complex workflows to simple, intuitive, and delightful interfaces. Currently, Product Designer at KVK, the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce.


 

Background story

I was born in Beijing, China and grew up in Delft, the Netherlands. Relating to different cultures taught me the importance of adaptability, perspective, and empathy. All of which, are important skills that I have brought with me into the world of design. Today the same curiosity about people and our relationships with various aspects of the world guides me while being engaged in digital product development.
As a child, I loved drawing and making things, being curious about human behaviour and how to evoke positive emotions. I loved doing things that brought a smile to people's faces. The same passion extends to design for me in the present day — I help businesses to imagine, design and build digital products and experiences that people love to use.

When I’m happy at work

Over the last few years, I discovered that I’m at my best and most satisfied when I’m working at the intersection of disciplines, kickstarting things and making the complex simple. I’m motivated by product teams that love to challenge themselves and each other, creating high-quality digital products, with a shared vision that motivates others.

I’ve had the pleasure to work with various clients ranging from corporate and public sector to start- and scale-ups.
