why i design
I believe good design should feel truly useful, delight the user, and fit our lifestyle naturally. I think about these values in all aspects of my life, whether I’m playing hide-and-seek with my little one, cooking Thai food for my family, or jogging in the park. Whatever the experience is, I love thinking about how to make it the most approachable and enjoyable for the user.
