I’m writing and producing a fiction podcast that explores our inner thoughts in modern relationships.

BYTHEBAY.COOL + BALLOT.FYI 

In 2018, I co-founded a local media company called By The Bay. We produced nonpartisan SF and CA midterm election voter guides for young residents.

As President of the Asian American Journalists Association, I led an org-wide rebrand, and efforts to expand our global impact. 

VOX.COM ON SNAPCHAT DISCOVER 

I led a team of motion designers and video editors to produce Vox.com's Snapchat Discover channel.

"Journalist Yvonne Leow created The Hello Project because she wanted to see what would happen when she invited strangers to engage in dialogue with one another.

 

And not just any strangers — she wanted the people in dialogue to come from different backgrounds, perspectives and philosophies."

THE HELLO PROJECT

I created a nationwide social experiment that matched strangers with opposing political views to talk via video chat.

 

ABOUT

Whether it's explaining local politics or writing fiction podcasts, I love translating complex ideas into joyful products and interactive experiences.

As an editor, I've helped companies, like TechCrunch, Sequoia Capital, and Nextdoor, develop editorial and partnership strategies. 

I'm always looking for a mountain to climb (literally) and a gnarly problem to solve. Let's collaborate.
