Founder and principal of Y Studios, a design and research consultancy in San Francisco

My Story

I was born in Malaysia in 1967. Having lived and worked in Singapore and Canada, my rich background brings a unique perspective to my design practice in the United States. Equally adept at expressing my creativity in both 2D and 3D, I am skilled in communicating across cultural boundaries.

Before establishing Y Studios in 2001, I was the Design Lead at GVO in Palo Alto, CA. I have 25 years of design experience and continue to use my forces for good by offering innovative solutions in graphic, interface and industrial design across a diverse body of work in the technology, lifestyle and houseware industries. My clients include O2, Sonos, Keen Footwear, Johnson & Johnson and Philips.

I earned my Bachelor of Industrial Design from Carleton University in Canada. My work has been internationally recognized and has earned numerous design awards around the world including the Red Dot, iF, Businessweek IDEA and ID Magazine.
