My Experience

Product Designer @ Hanchau App (Side-project)

Oct 2022 - Present

In 2022, my friend and I realised that we needed a reliable system to help us track the workout progress. The overly-complex workout apps on the market left us yearning for a better solution. Hence, the side project. We kicked off this project in Oct 2022, and named it Hanchau after the Taiwanese term Hàn-tsháu for fitness. Our goal is to create a better record taking app integrated both exercise and nutrition tracking.

Product Designer @ ĒSEN Inc.

Nov 2021 - Jan 2023

I joined ĒSEN, a healthcare company, in 2021 as the second member of the tech team. I led the design and product strategy of the healthcare and medical solutions for physicians and patients. During my time at ĒSEN, I had not only levelled up my design and product planning skills, but also dabbled in no-code development, including Airtable, Zapier, and Webflow.

Product Designer @ SkyREC Inc.

Jul 2020 - Apr 2021

During my time at SkyREC, I focused on the CRM initiatives for mid-small size retailers. As the solo designer in the company, I've helped develop the documentation framework for the development team, and set up the cross-functional communication channels with the sales team.

Freelance Designer

Jun 2017 - Aug 2020

My design career started when I was in my junior year in college. I started off doing visual and editorial design for several local business and school admins; and gradually transitioned to web and UX/UI design when an opportunity came by. During my time as a freelancer, I've not only sharpened my design skills as a designer, but also learnt the arts of client relation and stakeholder management as a small business owner.

UX/UI Designer @ Between Two Lines (Side-project)

May 2018 - May 2019

Between Two Lines is a social campaign on unintended pregnancy issue. In 2019, my friends and I saw a gap in Taiwan's sex education and decided to launch an informational website, interactive storytelling game, and a series of social media campaign that talked about this specific issue. The project was later covered by several news media in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
