Chiu-Ki Chan is an Android developer who enjoys mostly geeky hobbies like board games, puzzles and escape rooms. She never thought of herself as an artist, until she was introduced to sketchnoting. Through sketchnoting, she discovered that drawing is not some innate ability that you are either born with or without, but rather a skill that everyone can learn. And she delights in sharing this discovery with her fellow geeks.
