Hello, I'm Kayee. I'm a Chinese-American design director, multimedia designer, tech entrepreneur, and MBA graduate from the American University in Cairo, and Stellenbosch Business School.
Formerly at Chipper Cash, IDEO.org, Breadfast, and Mosabi; I was also an intern at Dreamworks Animation and a graduate of USC's School of Cinematic Arts. For almost a decade, I’ve been living and working across major markets in Africa (Tanzania, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa). Cape Town is my chosen home - for now ;)
My work spans across a variety of disciplines and industries, from film, e-commerce, and non-profit; to fintech, edtech, and human centered design. The golden thread that links each career milestone is an deep desire to build impactful solutions with incredible teams.
Want to work together? Drop me a line on LinkedIn or email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
For almost a decade, I’ve collected many thoughts around design, startups, leadership, being a foreigner in Africa, China/Africa/US relations, and ultimately… the unexpected paths where my curiosity has lead me.
