The meaning of my name translates to "infinite sunshine," and that's what I seek to spread through design.
I ran my own freelance design consulting firm (Chameleon) for three years, leading five product designers on a dozen consulting projects - including inventing magnetically levitating toy angels, designing 3D-printed furniture from the ashes of deceased pets, and developing visual identities for three online media brands.
I then launched the world’s first music stand that sticks to walls (Stikato) on Kickstarter, shipped it to 6 different countries, and had my journey featured by The Violin Channel & The Strad Magazine.
I'm always building & exploring new avenues of design. I’ve released over 20 original creations, from environmentally-conscious bamboo lamps to modular 3D-printed electric violins to interactive loveseats that form an eclipse when users’ heartbeats are in sync.
I spent a summer designing motion-tracking wearables for Lumo Bodytech, published a book to help others unlock their creative potential (Creative Current), and served as the lead staff member in Stanford’s product design themed dorm (Lantana).
In school, I've built robots that jump several meters, coded VR art installations in Unity, conducted needfinding studies on parkour athletes and children in military families, explored the design & business viability of a phone flashlight holder that turns an umbrella into a "light orb", partnered with Stanford hospital to redesign their psychiatry ward & emergency room experience, & written a paper on the cultural psychology of food in Eastern + Western nations.
I lead my own music education
non-profit (NYO-U) in partnership with Carnegie Hall, and have traveled over 50,000 miles on tour performing as a violinist in the National Youth Orchestra of the USA. My debut classical album ‘Daydreams’ was hand-picked by Spotify as one of their Top 50 new releases.
My peers describe me as authentic, emotionally intelligent, vibrant, and reflective.
I’m interested in career opportunities that involve the entire design process, are overflowing with empathy & curiosity, provide space for growth & risk-taking, and synergize my skills in engineering + human-centered design + entrepreneurial leadership.
In my free time, I love brewing cotton candy, writing short-story mysteries, building interactive costumes, ear-sampling bossa nova jazz, and going for sunset runs.
