Things I am

Born in Bangkok and raised in Toronto, I'm a designer who's always looking for inspiration from small shared experiences. I believe in bringing joy and care to products and brands through meaningful design. I love making things, whether it's digital products, IKEA furniture, LEGO kits, or handmade crafts. I'm particularly interested in the grey zones between human and humanmade, and between practical and absurd. Currently preparing for my final year at York/Sheridan Design (Class of 2022).

Outside of design, I enjoy studying languages, taking new bus routes, and going to farmer's markets.
