Hey, I am Siman.

I have been Siman for 9756 days.

It’s a Chinese name, in which “Si” means thinking (思), “Man” means “graceful”(曼), so I guess that makes me a graceful thinker. I do think a lot, since my biggest joy in life is to create, I always find myself either creating or thinking how to create.

As an experience designer & creative technologist, I had the pleasure to work for companies like IDEO, Tik Tok, and IBM, but I also truly enjoy myself when creating art works as a new media artist.

When I am not nerdy about code and design, I am a huge film junkie, a book worm and a proud yogini. My recent favs are Stalker by Tarkovsky, Kaili Blues by Bi Gan, and the book Solaris. I am also saving up 💰 for my pomapoo puppy Maodo.

Don’t be shy, let’s say hi. 💖
