Artist Statement

I always insist that the duty of a designer is to solve problems. Designers are responsible to see through all the fog and clutter and create solutions that propel people forward. Empathy and storytelling are two methods I use to access the goal. Capturing what users see, feel and experience by research methods and empathy, I try my best to understand users' expressions, needs, motivations and limitations. Good stories captivate audiences and convey values in an immersive way. I utilize storytelling to create pleasant experiences that foster better relationships between humans, products and society.
