Born in Hong Kong to a French mother and American father, I grew up in Northern California and Paris, generally identifying with the international culture.
I studied industrial design at California State University, Long Beach. During college I lived abroad for one year in Shanghai, China to continue the Mandarin studies I had started in high school in France. With the certification earned at Jiao Tong University, I completed a double bachelor's degree in Mandarin Chinese.
During my last year of college, I met my first business partner John Kim in 2010 with whom I started Nimble Scooters, a company that designs and manufactures kick-scooters with built-in cargo space for transporting goods over short distances. In parallel, I also worked for a few other companies such as CG-Mobile and Brille24.de as a designer and creative strategist. Meanwhile, our California-based company Nimble Scooters grew and pivoted into making electric bikes, thus starting the Super 73 brand under Lithium Cycles in Spring of 2016.
My path has led me to become familiar with the (electric) urban mobility scene in Paris and the United States. My network and understanding of the industry has since increased thanks in part to working on the first edition or the first urban mobility festival Autonomy Paris, in 2016.
Extensive travel and the ability to pick up languages quickly enables me to be aware of subtle cultural differences, a necessary skill for strategic product launches and business relationships. I love connecting my friends and communities together, and am good at keeping in touch, communicating at all levels and opportunities.
I love building things, whether it's companies, events, websites, dinner menus, and relationships. When i'm not riding bicycles, traveling or working on the computer, i'm most likely playing volleyball (preferably on the beach), meeting up with visiting friends, learning a new language or cooking.
