Meng (it rhymes with tongue) is a product designer who helps early stage companies search for product / market fit.

Meng helps clients develop their ambitious startup ideas to launch a product that solves real problems, and backed with a solid business strategy. From designing brand identity, wireframing, user flows, user testing, finding product/market fit, and too many marketing/sales/fundraising decks to count, she’s worn many hats as a product designer to get the job done.

Meng has led product design and strategy at early and mid-stage startups in e-commerce, social media, travel, security, mobile payments, and dating—one of which appeared on Shark Tank. Meng was part of a 5-person UX special ops team during the 2014 TED Conference to help attendees bring ideas into action. She graduated as valedictorian from Parsons The New School for Design and hopes to one day make it on another game show with Snoop Dogg.
