My Story With Design and Code

Back to when I was in high school, the first technology I aspired to learn was Adobe Lightroom. I enjoyed tweaking curves and colors to see the alternative reality. Gradually I came to master PS, PR, AI for purposes of re-editing and expanding my original photos into visual graphics, such as posters and postcards.

I took my first HTML/CSS/JS online course (felt so hard) before studying at Parsons, where I soon discovered my passion in creative coding since the first class. My projects in that class were either sketchy or semi-broken, but I gained two important insights that helped me so much later. First, always learn by doing. Second, resort to Google when no one around can help. Half guided half self-taught, in the rest semesters, I navigated through Arduino, ml5.js, Touchdesigner, Twine, and Git in various projects.

I knew that day of learning 100% on my own would come, and it came right after graduation. Not as fearful as assumed, I approached Blender while learning 3.js, connected Touchdesigner with ShaderPark before going deep into intricate shader knowledge. I found myself more motivated when I can receive visual feedback and have curiosity in the project. In a recent web project where I integrated Prismic, Node.js, GSAP, WebGL, I enjoyed it from the beginning and became more dedicated when I understood the code more.

I am always on the journey of designing and coding. Feel free to contact me if you have anything challenging and amazing ahead.
