Hello, my name is Ping. I am a data driven product designer. I love product design with a concentration on user experience and a passion for metrics. Conversion rates keep me up at night. :)

Good UX finds the sweetspot between business goal, user needs and technology feasibility.

My strength is being able to hit that sweetspot
