About 

I am a recent graduate with an MA in Exhibition and Experience Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. I holds another MA degree in Interior and Spatial Design from the University of the Arts London(UAL) in UK.

As a spatial storyteller, I aims to connect ideas to people through choregraphed multi-sensory experiences. I enjoys synthesizing concepts into coherent language to develop compelling and meaningful narratives, in which the entire story can be embedded into visitors’ experiences. Through a metaphoric and empathetic experiential design, I expect to open a conversation on contemporary topics and emphasize aspects of humanity.
