About Me

Hi! I'm Jane.

I'm a designer and strategist who loves tackling challenges head-on. My journey began in industrial design and mechanical engineering, providing a robust problem-solving foundation for my current focus on UX design. Since then, I have taken on a multitude of design disciplines, including industrial design, UX/UI design, visual design, human-centered research & more.


Across my portfolio you'll find a wide range of projects across medical, consumer and industrial sectors. Working across different industries and disciplines has shifted my approach to understanding design challenges and shaped my ability to think more holistically about the bigger picture and the overall impact for the end user. ​


What motivates me most is the overarching goal of enhancing human experiences through design. I'm intrigued by the ways in which thoughtful design can address challenges, uncover opportunities, and spark joy through solutions grounded in user insights.
