About Me

Hello, I’m Andrea.

I won’t lie. Like 99.9% of us, I love talking about myself. So fascinating! So flawed!


But seriously, I’ll try to keep it to a few (13?) bullet points.


  • UX researcher at Google
  • Master’s student in Human Factors in Information Design at Bentley University
  • Live in San Francisco since late 2013 after 8 amazing years in Shanghai
  • Inspired to join the UX field after seeing how others used design for social impact


  • Communications consultant at a WPP agency for clients like IHG and Ford
  • Brought global non-profit e-Learning For Kids into China as country lead, handling everything from strategy and research to securing our local partner.
  • Chief editor of a popular lifestyle media platform

ME :)

  • Cross-cultural translator between China and the US
  • Grew up in Hong Kong, Toronto, Singapore and New York City
  • Languages: English (native), Cantonese & Mandarin (general working proficiency)
  • Love Asian emoticons (WeChat!) and old school video games (Donkey Kong!)
  • Chaotic wet markets = my happy place
  • News junkie, particularly stories on China, education, ageing, public transport and cross-cultural anything

My ego thanks you for stopping by!
