About 

I was born in Ottawa (Canada), raised in Hong Kong (China) and Toronto (Canada). After several environmental changes and cultural settlements, I searched for the identity within as well as the meaning of places I belong to. I love everything related to architecture thus my great interest in people. After a year of working in Hong Kong, I am currently pursuing the Master degree of Architecture in San Francisco. I am passionate about architectures, interested in creating eye-catching imagery, and obsessed with the unexpected.
