About Me

A product designer that posses five years of experience in manufacturing, specialising in steel and wood fabrication. I am a dedicated professional with a strong emphasis on consumer product design, particularly in interior fit.

My design philosophy centres around prioritising form before function, reflecting my commitment to seamlessly merging aesthetics with functionality. I have successfully collaborated with overseas partners to produce innovative and collaborative product designs that meet global standards.

I bring a global perspective and a proven track record of creating products that not only perform exceptionally but also captivate with their aesthetic brilliance. Excited to contribute my skills to future projects, I am a versatile professional ready to excel in the dynamic intersection of manufacturing and design.

I had personally handled large projects which over 1000m² areas. Designing for some of the well known developer's project such as Housing and Development Board (HDB) - Singapore, Ecoworld, Sunway Group, The Ascott Limited and etc. A strong believer in form before function.
