Vancouver, B.C. · Gallery · Bio
Made in Taiwan, assembled in Canada, and reprogrammed in the UK, I have been an international advertising and documentary photographer for the last 10 years. My journey in photography hasn't been the most straightforward one, but like most stories in my life, my positive attitude has carried me through. I spent five tough years going to one of the top business schools in Canada, only to find out that I didn't want to do anything but make images when I graduated. For the next two years I somehow survived the traumatic experience of being a lousy assistant working for some of the greatest photographers today. As if that wasn't enough of a deterrence, I went on to study for my masters degree in documentary photography at the London College of Communication. When I finished I realized, while I am not cut out to be a hardcore photojournalist, I am good with telling stories in a beautiful and lyrical visual language. 
"You photograph what you are". I couldn't agree more with this statement. Growing up with Eastern and Western influences, I've learned to always look at things with infused perspectives and aesthetics. I am attracted to energy, forms, light, and raw emotions. In my photographs I mix these elements with my life experiences to communicate what I see in this fascinating world. I have had the privilege to work all over the world with some of the brightest minds in our industry. I hope my portfolios can speak for themselves. When the phone stops ringing I will know it's time to update this bio!
