BIOGRAPHY
I didn’t go to a regular high school. While growing up in Taiwan I attended Tainan Woman’s College of Arts and Technology, a technical school where I earned a 5-year Arts and Crafts diploma and gained a solid foundation in the tools of the trade. I attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I fell in love with San Francisco and graphic design, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with an emphasis in packaging design.

I interned at Landor Associates where I worked on beverage packaging design for several Coors Brewing Company brands. One of my most significant memory was seeing my design concepts from Landor on the grocery store shelf for the first time. Design became both my love and passion.

I moved to Las Vegas to work at a fast-paced design agency, Schadler Kramer Group Advertising. My primary clients were in the food and entertainment industries and included Planet Hollywood, MGM Grand, Wolfgang Puck, Starr Restaurant, W Hotel, Seminole Hard Rock, Montage Resort, Mandalay Bay, etc. I returned to San Francisco where I worked at a boutique design agency, Fine Design Group. Here I worked with clients across many industries and engages in design projects at multiple levels, including design strategy and execution, pricing/quotes, and production.

I speak English, Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese and live with my husband and two children in the San Francisco Bay Area. In my free time I enjoy dancing, painting, music and film.
