Hi, I’m Karen,  a product manager and designer based in the Silicon Valley. I’m interested in the intersection between design and engineering, and applying technology to different areas like healthcare, education, and entertainment.

Hi, I’m Karen! I’m currently a technical writer at Google.

I studied Comparative Literature and Music at UC Berkeley, with side helpings of computer science courses. My combined exploration of literature and technology led me on a path through multimedia journalism, technical writing, product management, design, web development, and back to technical writing.

Through all these roles, I discovered a passion for media and entertainment technology, particularly the way storytelling and technology evolve together. I enjoy hearing about users’ personal experiences through field research.

Fun facts:

  • I speak Mandarin and love learning about languages and linguistics.

  • Born and raised in the Bay Area.

  • I’m a musician and composer.

  • No pets, but would love to pet your adorable dog.
