fter 15 years as a Physiotherapist and a short stint as Private Chef, I discovered that I found great joy in combining art, science and design. My past few years working as a UX Designer have confirmed how much I enjoy solving complex problems that enrich people's lives.
I have been humbled by starting all over again with my career change to UX, which has given me new perspective and many opportunities to take on new challenges to build great products and services through continued learning and curiosity.
I am getting better at dealing with the uncertainty that comes with the design process. Learning to not become attached to any one idea but rather to explore and test many ideas that move us closer to a better solution.
I am an early investor and advisor to Ace+Freak, a craft cocktails in a can company. Have relished learning how to build a business, fundraise and scale from the ground up. It gave me the confidence to start my own company, Suste.
Co-founding a sustainable health startup taught me the value of grit and determination. Finding clarity in the complexity of wicked problems. The project is now on hold as I lost my co-founder to family commitments and I work to improve my design and business skills.
I am a third culture kid, born in vibrant Vietnam and growing up in sunny Adelaide, Australia before moving to exciting London in 2006. I love keeping fit through basketball, cycling and more recently climbing, hiking and snowboarding.
Vietnamese cuisine and eating bring me lots joy. I especially love cooking a meal for friends and bringing people from different friendship circles together to share ideas and have a laugh.
