I am a Chinese-Canadian artist and photographer based in Toronto, Canada. I studied photography at Ryerson University and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

My photographic interests involve exploring cultural identity, personal histories, and how real and imaginary narratives make up our lives. I believe in the power of photography to tell people’s stories and create more empathy in the world. 

In addition to photography I frequently work with graphic design and photo editing. When I am not making images, you might find me watching a film or rock climbing.
