I first picked up a camera in at the early age of fifteen — inspired by music, literature, and art. Born in China, moved around within the country, then to Japan for 3 years, back to China for 2 years, then to United States in 2001. Such unique nature had nurtured within me a deep appreciation for the divergent beliefs among humans of different cultures and nations around the world. In amidst of changes, one thing remained constant: creativity. When words fail, pictorial language served as the vehicle of communication with the external world. Growing up with the rise of social media and technology have allowed me to see the possibility of a multicultural industry. I enjoy creating timeless beauty, often drawing on themes from science and psyche, into a cinematic storytelling project. Inspired by feminine strength, and leaders who led with integrity and humility. Demonstrated history of working in the medical practice industry. Strong arts and science professional graduate from Northwestern University.
