Hey! I am Xitong. Nice to meet you!

Coming from a Psychology background, I just graduated with a Master's degree in Integrated Product Design from Carnegie Mellon University last December. Now I am actively looking for a full-time UX designer position and ready to embrace the challenges. I believe in designs that are not only compelling for the user’s experience, but also for the technical and economic needs of the company. Feel free to know more about me below.
