My name is Tuyen (pronounced "twin") and I'm the creator behind this website. I'm Chinese born in Vietnam, raised in Seattle -- resulting in a culturally diverse upbringing and hard-to-pronounce name.
Professionally, I'm a UX Designer II at Expedia where no two days are the same. You can find me in whiteboard sessions with product & engineering, gathering insights with UX research and analytics, progressing my design phases on a Trello board, or giving/receiving feedback at daily design reviews. Sometimes you'll even find me cleaning my fish tank. Yes. I have a fish tank on my desk.
Personally, I refuel by traveling, practicing vinyasa yoga, and drinking bubble tea. I'm a very sentimental person, so what started as me organizing my travel memories evolved into sharing them publicly on a blog format. My hope is that they are helpful in providing trip ideas and inspiring others to travel...on a budget.
I'm passionate about using design and technology to solve people problems. My time spent professionally and personally both help people get to places that'll open their eyes, hearts, and minds.
ESFJ (should clarify that I'm like 51% extrovert and 49% introvert)
