I make things
for
human beings

I'm a designer, illustrator, and writer. My work emphasizes user-friendly interactive experiences that blur the line between work and play. I run a design studio called Suen Labs, where we work with startups, small businesses, and creative entrepreneurs to design meaningful web products and campaigns that audiences love to use.

Projects I've worked on have been featured in Wired, TechCrunch, and NPR. I've spoken about game-based learning, participatory culture, and digital humanities at MIT, Brown University, and York University. In a former life, I produced games and digital content at the award-winning MIT spin-off  Learning Games Network.

Spawned in the tar pits of L.A., raised by capitalist wolves in Hong Kong, and educated on the ice planet of Vermont, I now live in Cambridge, MA with my PlayStation.
