I’m Ophelia, a Bay Area native living and working in San Francisco. My days are spent working as a product designer at Pinterest, where I design features that empower creators on the platform.
My evenings are comprised of shooting freelance with my trusty film camera (the Asahi Pentax is my weapon of choice), meticulously documenting my book choices to ensure I’m reading diverse voices, or volunteering with my church community. I also co-write a newsletter called Stay Here, which compiles beautiful stays for the traveling homebody.
Prior to Pinterest, I was at Wish for 5 years, where I designed video commerce features across their consumer platforms. I built out Wish's product design internship program and led recruiting, managing, and programming for the ~30 students who joined Wish throughout the course of the year. Before Wish, I interned at LinkedIn (twice!), designing for their employee experience team. I graduated from UC San Diego (where I devoured tacos and sunshine), helped lead Design Co, designed for ArtPower, watched President Obama thank Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for emojis while interning for the White House's Initiative on AAPIs, and spent time abroad at both UCL (London, England) and Meiji Gakuin University (Yokohama, Japan).
