About "Suzie Q."

I am a bilingual visualist, digital strategist, and project manager based in California. Emigrating from Shanghai at age ten, I unknowingly named myself after Lazy Susan when I played dictionary roulette with zero understanding of English. I still regret that choice but Lazy Susan is quite practical and helpful, just like me. A social scientist by education, I bring my research, problem-solving, analytical and critical thinking qualifications to all my projects.

With more than a decade of experience, I am interested in utilizing my multidisciplinary skillset to support causes that advance the dream for a just, clean, resilient future, full of biodiversity, music and art.
