About Me


Hi! I’m Xiangrui, an independent game developer and creative technologist based in New York. I recently graduated with a master’s degree in Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP) from New York University. I enjoy utilizing diverse media to explore new ways of experiencing games, moving beyond traditional mouse, keyboard, and controller inputs, and engaging players with unique and emotionally resonant experiences.


I have also created some wearable instruments, audio interactive installations, and musical robots ~ 🤖

I love listening to jazz piano, but not really good at playing. Still practicing ... 🎹
