I was born and raised in Hong Kong, where I developed a passion for the arts and photography in high school. At age 17, I moved to New York City to be a student of architecture and philosophy, and to expand my photographic exploration. An active immersion in culturally diverse environments, in combination with an extensive exposure to environmental and social sustainability courses, led my growth as a designer and thinker to grow empathic and considerate to all forms of life. Through academia and further work experience, I aim to continue to heighten my awareness and understanding of the socio-ecological systems that operate in modern societies; so that I may, through design, resolve many of the problematic issues we are experiencing today.
