Where do I start? My design journey began when I was a 15-year-old kid, fell in love with a football game and I wanted to share with the whole world my tips and strategies. It led me to design and I built my own website hosted at Yahoo!, with a cracked version of Photoshop 🤫. And then my first index.html was published 🥳.
I graduated from Temasek Polytechnic and the University of Wollongong with a Bachelor of Information Technology. (Not exactly design trained. I studied Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) and Psychology in uni which helped tremendously!)
I started getting better at designing websites. I was quickly getting requests to design websites for small companies and it got me some serious money 💰which led me to lot of years freelancing before I ended up at Yahoo! (what a coincidence) as a UX Designer. My first ever corporate career kicked off at this giant company in 2010. It was the only US tech company in Singapore back then!
