data, design, and storytelling.


Hi! My name is Lorraine.  I like to write and make digital things.

I dabble in the intersections of design, data, and storytelling. I co-founded Intersectional Analyst, a blog that deconstructs social issues through infographics and data visualizations.  As a writer and (sometimes) comic-artist, I explore themes around my Chinese identity, familygrowing up, and existing online. I tell stories about intergenerational grief and loneliness

I currently write and design things at Powered by Data, an organization working with nonprofits and government to help them better use and share data. Prior to that, I helped organize OpenCon, a community focused on making scholarly and educational materials freely and openly available online. I also coordinated digital literacy programming for teens with Canada Learning Code. 

In 2015-2016, I was a social innovation Studio [Y] Fellow at the MaRS Discovery District.
