hey there, i'm kel 🌾

I'm a Vancouver-based product designer of Malaysian-Chinese descent, with a background in business and sociology. My interests lie in the intersections of tech and social impact, though I'm wondrously intrigued by the inner workings of game design. I'm also looking to be a more radically candid human in 2021.

Currently studying Consumer Behaviour at Western University, leveling up design at Hack Western, and interning at RBC where I'm designing and developing interfaces for AI services. More details can be found on my LinkedIn

I love being in nature. I went on numerous backcountry camping and hiking trips in high school, and am always looking for my next outdoor adventure (ziplining in Whistler soon, woohoo!). On a day to day however, you can find me playing spikeball, curating my Spotify playlists, or documenting my life on Notion and Twitter.
