WRITING

Oh, hi there. I'm Ling. It's nice to see you here. I am a product designer with an award-winning background in architectural design. On the side, I find joy in getting my hands dirty designing and fabricating furniture from scratch. I also sketch, paint and write regularly. My passion lies in using design as a tool to push humanity forward and to bring equality to all. 

I think of any design as a cohesive whole, from the user to the medium itself in its environment. 7 years ago, I came to America as a traveler, ended up changing my career and my life. I am currently working at Carta as a Senior Product Designer, helping revolutionalize the way we think about private equity. Prior to this, I was a Design Lead at Verizon Media

I have mentored students, designers and founders at DesignLab, CascadeSF, Designers Guild, BUILDUP.vc and Tradecraft etc. 

Outside of design, I am a competitive powerlifter, furniture maker, writer, and speaker. I live relentlessly in San Francisco with my dog, Cyrus. We would love it if you say hi! You can do so via Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium, Instagram or good ol' email.

On the side, I find joy in getting my hands dirty designing and fabricating furniture from scratch. I also sketch on a daily basis. My passion lies in using design as a tool to bring joy to people and to express myself creatively.

I think of any design as a cohesive whole, from the user to the medium itself in its environment. 5 years ago, I came to America as a traveler, ended up changing my career and my life. I am currently working at Oath on the Ads+Data team. Prior to this, I was Head of User Experience at a startup based in San Francisco. 

I have mentored students, fellow designers and startup founders at DesignLab, CascadeSF, Designers Guild, BUILDUP.vc and Tradecraft etc. It feels good to give back.
