Have you ever look up into the sky at night and wonder how big the universe is, and how small we are?
Yes. Humans are small, and we are not the center of the Universe. But we are working our hardest to create the most comfy environment for the living creatures on this planet. We are here to stay and to create.
Other than graduating from Art Center, one of my most important days in my life came when I was pursuing an architecture degree in Taiwan: my professor failed me. Things had come easy to me before then. I had taken my path for granted. I thought that was what I was suppose to do, and had never challenged myself to see what I truly wanted to do. The failure opened doors for me, brought me to the US where I found my passion for product design at the end of a long journey.
I appreciate in both life and design where there is a cause and effect; things that I have to work for. I believe that failure comes when you are not challenged enough. This type of engagement brings a deep discovery in people of all ages, and results in a sense of enlightenment. I want people to engage to experience. I want them to have a journey with the product like I have had a journey through life. My life lesson has help shaped how I think of myself, my work, and how I approach design challenges.
