Hello there, my name is Tien-Tien! 

I’m always dabbling, and creating in various ways on a variety of projects.

I'm a human being who is excited about bringing ideas to life in the digital space. I began in mass communication, a lot of self-learning, and my love for asking the "why" to everything. My muse of food + culture and desire for intentional spaces have been guiding pieces in how I approach design. They have inspired me be thoughtful in my process when creating visually compelling digital products that communicate clarity and hospitality.

Currently, I'm at Popmenu combining hospitality and the digital realm so restaurants can build their online presence in cost-effective ways. Before, I was creating products for marketing analytics by crafting design systems and a lead engagement platform.

I've been working in design for 4+ years and counting. My experience is founded in product strategy, systems thinking, and executing on projects in various multidisciplinary design roles. I've collaborated with budding startups to mid-size organizations, with projects ranging from brand and marketing for health tech, UI/UX for B2B SaaS products, mobile fin-tech, and drone/UAV tech.

Recently, I've been focusing most of my "5-9" on my podcast, External Musings. It's very much a stream of consciousness of my experiences of learning how to adult and navigating the world of design and tech. I've also been working closely with people looking to transition their careers to design at CareerFoundry. It has been a great experience for me, learning to address various levels of design understanding, and learning styles.

All the other times, I enjoy listening to tunes, hanging out with my doge Junior, and finding tasty snacks when I get the chance. I also have other creative dabbles like making stickers and streaming games and doodles on Twitch.
