Hi! I'm Zhi

I am an Interaction Designer, a self-taught chef & a really bad Mandarin rapper.

I just wrapped up my MFA of Interaction Design from Ume├ą Institute of Design. I am now looking for opportunities starting from this fall.

As a designer, I really enjoy the feeling of getting closer to the truth by making mistakes earlier, reflecting on them and not making the same mistake again. I also like doing Weird Side Projects in my spare time to add some spice in life.

Welcome to my home and feel free to hang around.
