About me

I’m Avalon a product designer, currently working at Adobe, designing assets and collaboration solutions for Creative Cloud. 

I started out my career back in 2011, I moved to New York right after I received my Master’s degree from University of Michigan, School of Information, with a focus on HCI (Human Computer Interaction). I have had the honor to work at R/GA and ustwo in the past 6 years with many different clients, including Google, Nook, Sony, PwC, Verizon Wireless, American Express, CareSync, Abercrombie & Fitch, and a few more.

I’m an analytical thinker and I really enjoy solving complex problems, seeing patterns in how things work, and explaining things in a very simple way. I used to study engineering but found myself craving to work with and for people directly. It’s why I love HCI so much - it’s the perfect blend of technology and design with a human element. My favorite part of it all is the feeling I get when I see the stuff I made have a positive effect on  people.

Other than product design, information visualization and illustrations are two things I love to spend time working on. And just recently, one of my illustration work is accepted into an exhibition in Tromsø, Norway, and will be on display from June 18 - August 1, 2016. I guess my hard work starts to pay off!
