Hello! I’m a Boston-based artist and designer whose work focuses on experimental communication via the convergence of art, technology, and culture. 

Growing up in Vietnam, I came to the U.S. for university when I was 18. Since then, life has taken me to live, study and work in China, Japan, UK and Switzerland. Due to my travels, I also love learning  languages (despite not being great at any of them!).

After ten years away from Vietnam and making a new life in the Northeast, I hope to use the skills I learned since leaving to remember, reimagine, and recreate my personal experience bounded by the two worlds.

When I'm not designing or coding, I enjoy braising elaborate dishes, playing piano, going on whisky tasting tours with my friends, and trying out dance classes ︎
