I had my childhood in a small coastal village in the north of China. Farming and fishing made me a very happy kid. Nothing feels more like home to me than sunshine and beach. Ever since the age of 5, violin has become my best friend whether I'm on or off the stage. After I finished my undergrad at one of China's top art school, unlike most of my friends who dived into media industry, becoming a news anchor, I found the joy of teaching English, helping others to achieve their American dream. Later, life took me on a new journey as the Foreign Affairs Officer of one of the largest private enterprise in mainland China. And I had the pleasure of serving a number of world leaders as their interpreter during their visit to China. After life in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, and Nanjing, I decided to step out of my motherland for the very first time and start fresh in New York. The Big Apple has always had a hold on my heart since I was little. It is the city that awakened me to my passion for photography.
