Hi! I'm Jess, a product designer currently working on Community & Trust within Marketplace at Facebook, based in the Bay Area.
I grew up in the best/worst state in the country, New Jersey, and I recently graduated from UC Berkeley, where I studied Cognitive Science and Asian American/Asian Diaspora Studies. I’m currently doing some web design for Sine Theta Magazine, an international print-based arts magazine created by the Sino diaspora. I’m also a volunteer with Inneract Project, an org that brings design education to underserved middle and high school students from the Bay Area.
Here’s a laundry list of the lovely orgs I’ve been able to work with in the past: Berkeley Innovation, UC Berkeley Student Information Systems - CalCentral, the Berkeley Forum, Xero, Indiegogo, BBox, and Ongo.
Outside of design, I’m interested in exploring Asian American identity and linguistics and politics and sometimes the intersection of those things. You can also find me doing yoga, dogspotting, cooking/baking, hiking, watching garbage TV shows (see: The Bachelor/Bachelorette, Love Island), but also watching pretty good TV shows (see: Brooklyn 99, The Handmaid’s Tale, Big Little Lies, The Good Place, Great British Bake Off/Baking Show) and ✨ throwing ✨ sparkle ✨ emojis ✨ everywhere ✨ I ✨go ✨✨✨✨✨.
Thanks for stopping by!
