Hi, I’m Nicole - a slasher (who take on multiple careers) based in London. Some people know me as a machine learning product manager at Expedia Group, some as a designer, some as a digital artist, and some as a travel blogger.
I love to call myself as a culture explorer as this is where I find the common sweet spot across my careers. I love to explore different cultures and dive into their art, architecture, history, and people. In my spare time, I love to visit somewhere away from the city, take photographs of the nature, read non-fiction books, and play musical instruments.
Over the past years, I've worked with Fortune 500 companies and many other clients featured in: Bloomberg, BBC, Yahoo, Amazon, and TED. I’ve also worked with top creative agencies to contribute to the success of leading companies.
With my integrated background in business / technology / design / art / volunteering, I love to explore different opportunities that make a positive impact to the world and the society!
I value accessibility and sustainability. The solutions that I provide is accessible for different types of users, as well as sustainable for a business to align with their strategic needs. I love to build long-term collaboration with my clients to support their growth.
My design tool of choice for anything is typically Figma - it’s brilliant at handling the wireframing, ideating, designing and collaboration aspects of my process. I also use Adobe Creative Suite for any illustration, branding, and editorial work.
For web design and development, I love the simplicity of Webflow after creating mockups in Figma. Notion is my go-to platform for any client communication and documentation!
