Memie is an animator and creative from New York City. She recently graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Art, Film, and Visual Studies. Her junior year 3D short about her earliest childhood memory, Afterschool, won the Short Waves Competition of the 2019 Boston Asian American Film Festival.
Memie started her animation journey spending way too many hours making animated and interactive graphics and ecards in Microsoft Powerpoint as a kid until she found Adobe Flash in high school, and later Blender and Autodesk Maya in college.
A hardcore science kid for most of her life (think: Science Bowl, Intel, molecular bio research), she decided to specialize in animation in college when she realized she was already spending all of her free time learning and making animation and still wanted more.
When she's not animating, she's drawing assets or composing original music for her and her friends' work (Memie's parents are piano teachers and she attended music school basically since birth). You can also find her dabbling in film, editing, and a bit of VFX. And to counteract all those hours of sitting, she finds great joy in sport Taekwondo.
If you're interested in telling stories with a visual and/or audio component, or using captivating and accessible motion graphics to reach new audiences, Memie wants to help make your vision a reality. She cares deeply about all the work she creates, and will work to make the best video possible with her signature bright, refined, and appealing style. She has a soft spot for animations and ideas that will make people stop and consider the world differently, or simply brighten a viewer's day.
