Hey there,


I'm Emily, a design graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design. Born in Iowa City and raised in San Jose, I'm a traveler at heart who is inspired by personal stories and excited to shape everyday interactions to be more accessible, enjoyable, and human for the community. 


On the side, I love learning about bio-inspired designs like this one. Baking sessions and some nice afternoon tea contents my heart! Stay connected with me at echao@alumni.risd.edu ☺
