Hi there, I'm Christine.

I'm a UX-focused digital designer. I want to improve lives by building tech experiences that are intuitive, helpful, efficient, and equitable.

I've led the charge on many web projects, working alongside developers, writers, and content producers. From initial ideas, through work processes, to fullblown beautiful executions—I'm fluent in all stages of design. View my resume

A little about me




In addition to English, I'm also fluent in Mandarin, Taiwanese and I'm currently learning Spanish

In 2018, I sold most of my earthly possessions and traveled across continents to see the world. On that trip, I got to meet Elvis in Chiang Mai, wave at the Pope in Palermo; I even planned and executed a successful eight-person dance party on the Trans-Siberian Railway
