An education in public policy started my analytical training. A passion for art and technology sparked my career path. The belief that incremental to monumental change begins in the details is what drives my work forward.
Curiouser & Curiouser
My parents named me Yang. They hoped for memorability. Some call me Linda. They choose familiarity.
Coast to coast to coast I roamed until I found a rent-controlled apartment to call home. Fortune brought me to the Bay, where Design is my trade. I work on modeling and mastering languages, visual and verbal, creative and coded, mental and machine.
At my best, I discover patterns, define systems, and solve future problems. I make late-night breakthroughs and advocate for afternoon naps. Through my experience, I eschew pixel perfection and pursue productive progress. I am not too cool for idealism but I have a low tolerance for inefficacy.
I am a human, student, spouse, daughter, and friend. I write in riddles and rhymes for feelings and fears I cannot recite. My compulsion for cleverness is at times crippling. I try to try everything at least once. I read every Hercules Poirot mystery at least thrice. My appetite for noodle soup is bottomless. The views from the heights of this Valley are boundless.
My grandmother sets the bar with her relentless studies. My mother survived a Cultural Revolution so that I can advance one of my own. Courage is my highest ideal, but curiosity changes the world.
