I spent the first 18 years of my life in Fuzhou, a small and tranquil city in southeastern China. From the age of 3, I was trained to be a national champion violinist. After receiving a diploma in Sociology from one of China's top universities and a master's degree in Economics and Education from Columbia University,  I made the decision to change directions and pursue my passion for photography. 

Other things about me:

I love sunrises and sunsets. One of my favorite experiences was sitting atop a mountain in Tibet at dusk, watching the sky burst into fiery colors. 

I have a bucket list, which includes camping under the milky way in the Saharan Desert,  learning the Tibetan language, passing a bartending certification exam, and enjoying an eight-hour long massage. 

In my spare time, I still play violin, but my music of choice is more along the lines of Super Mario rather than Bach or Paganini. 

My favorite phrase in Latin is "Carpe Diem." My favorite words in English are "Free Wifi." And my favorite phrase in Chinese is "老干妈辣椒酱".

I currently reside in New York.
