Hey, I’m Simon.

I'm a UX designer with 5+ years of experience in product design. I’m originally from Taiwan currently living in Tokyo. I'm obsessed with creating a delightful user experience that also achieves the business goals.

I’m specialized in multi-fields of design which allows me to convert abstract ideas to the feasible deliverables. I’m used to thinking from the user's perspective and striving to bring value to them. I enjoy being a designer that I can make the world different.

In my spare time, I like to make videos, write articles, cook Taiwanese foods, and snowboard. I can always gain some inspiration from those hobbies.

I love community

When I was in Taiwan, I actively participated in UX design meetups, conferences as well as being a guest speaker. It’s always great to have a connection with people who have similar interests and passionate about UX design. I like to talk to people from different companies, and I learned a lot about how they approach the problems through design from various perspectives.

I love writing and sharing

I love to convert my design thinking and experiences into the digestible content to share with more people, this is also a good way to reflect myself on what I’ve learned from the projects I’ve worked on. In the past 4 years, I've been writing more than 30 articles that accumulated more than 4,500 readers follow me on Medium.
