I design for the people who are often forgotten. I design for the edge cases. I design to fight for inclusivity in technology.

I believe that we must include diversity as a key building block in the creation of virtual reality spaces.

 

Who Am I?

I'm a designer, with a focus on VR/AR technologies. I do everything from UX and game design, to old school print graphic design.

I work as a full time designer at Within, creating AR and VR products such as Wonderscope and Supernatural. I also worked on Lambchild Superstar, which premiered at Tribeca 2019, and designed the exhibition space at Sundance New Frontiers 2018 for Chorus. I graduated from RISD in 2017 with a BFA in Graphic Design.

I was born to journalist parents in Hong Kong, 2 years before the British handover to China. I'm a third culture kid who grew up between Hong Kong and the Philippines, while attending a British international school. I previously lived in Providence, RI, USA, while I was at college. I currently live in Los Angeles, CA, USA with my husband and 3 cats. I am an immigrant, I am trans and gay, I am Filipino, and I am unapologetic.

 

Affiliated Organizations

I participate in the Queer Design Club. I am on the board of the LA RISD Alumni trying to connect recently graduated students with other artists and designers in the city. I am a member of the IGDA. I was previously head of design at Hack@Brown, Brown University's annual hackathon that's geared towards getting beginners started in tech. I actively try to find spaces that push for representation within tech.
