Wenqi Li (Eric)

Currently living in New York. I'm a creative technologist, full-stack developer, maker, interaction designer, and a crazy Pixar fan.

My work blends light, sound and hardwares with interaction design and uses web technology, mixed media palette to explore a tangible future.

After finished my philosophy bachelor degree, I worked as a game designer and interaction designer for two years, chasing my software engineer master degree at the same time. Now I'm studying creative technology at Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP), New York University.
