Spotlist

React app to get information about any Spotify playlist. Motivated by the frustration about how difficult Spotify makes it to copy track, album, or artist name, which was obstructing me from discovering kpop and Thai artists.

Grow Together

A tablet app for kids to learn about and stay safe during the international pandemic through tending to a virtual garden. Designed for US-college-wide Adobe + Nickelodeon Creative Jam, where my team placed 6th place out of 145 teams.

Breathe

Minimalist New Tab extension that gives you a short breathing exercise before every browsing session, a reminder that we can all benefit from a moment of recollection and contemplation in today's fast-paced world.

10 Albums of the 2010s

Designed a jewel-box-bound book that was printed on a 19th century printing press to highlight the music that helped define the past decade, which was then turned digital with React.

Planned Universe

An initiative to collect plans of all kinds: floor plans, yatch plans, aircraft plans, urban master plans, subway plans, airport plans — fueled by a personal fascination.

Presidential Hopefuls

As a part of The Yale Politic's Tech Team, I helped develop this minisite showcasing The Yale Politic's features and interviews conducted over the past years about the presidential candidates for the 2020 election.
I started building things some time ago. Exploring the intersection between design and code makes me feel powerful, and implementing design to create meaningful and useful products has been more fulfilling than my past dabbling in fine arts. The liberal arts™ education at Yale has afforded me the opportunity to discover economics and political science as immensely interesting, although what I will do with them remains to be seen.
In my free time, I enjoy watching Chinese TV, collecting song lyrics, and making Spotify playlists. I am fascinated by architecture and interior design and collect cool floor plans on a blog. One of my life ambitions is becoming Yelp Elite one day, but I figure my love for food trumps my critical insights nearly 100% of the time, so we will see about that.
