I worked on the redesign of the dictionary instant answer on DuckDuckGo, and I’m happy that it’s finally out! It was one of the first things that I got to work on as a frontend engineer 9 years ago (!!), and I’m glad that I got to work on it again as a designer.
Last month we went to a Japanese garden in Philadelphia. Here are some photos that we took from that lovely garden.
I made a desktop app called Ear Transit! It’s a tiny tool that lets you listen to background noise on your computer even if you’re not connected to the internet. It currently has 4 background noises at the moment, but I’ll be adding more pretty soon. Right now it only runs on Windows, so I’m […]
I found out about AutoHotKey last week because I was looking for a lightweight alternative to Logitech Options. My plan was to remap the buttons on my mouse and be done with it. But after going through the AutoHotKey tutorial, I realized that it’s actually much more powerful than I thought. It got me excited […]
I have a messy collection of photos (with the occasional screenshots) because I never got in the habit of organizing them in the past. I’ve also been stupidly storing them in a lot of different places (iCloud, OneDrive, Dropbox, Instagram, etc.), so it’s a bit of a pain to get them all in one place. […]
Today I got to visit Longwood Gardens. If you’ve never been, it’s basically a huge plot of land filled with a wide assortment of beautiful and pristine-looking plants. I think the last time I visited was 6 years ago so I definitely need to go to this place more often. It was relaxing and it […]
Yesterday was my 30th birthday! I wanted to celebrate by going on a little weekend vacation. We usually travel, but we decided to stay local this time because of COVID’s resurgence. So we just drove to a different part of town just three miles outside of our apartment to staycation at a hotel for the […]
I had such a hard time working out from home in 2020. I bought a pull up bar, a pair of dumbbells, and a set of resistance bands, but I couldn’t get the habit of exercising to stick. I’ve been attending classes for so long that I didn’t really know how to work out on […]
A few months ago, I got to work on the designs for blocking embedded content from Facebook. This can be embedded videos, comments, posts, pages, groups, and login buttons on the websites that you visit. This is greatly limits what Facebook can learn from you as you browse the web, and it’s also convenient to […]
I recently recorded a clip about why I love working as a product designer at DuckDuckGo, and it was just posted on the design team’s Twitter account. I just used an iPhone to record it, so I’m glad that it turned out well! A lot of websites and apps track your behavior across the web, […]
