Growing up as a child in Hong Kong, I loved listening to Cantopop musicians. I was also fascinated by their vinyl album covers and began creating my own cassette tape designs. As time went by, I became even more interested in visual arts. I was enamored by William Chang Suk Ping’s use of color and composition in film and vinyl covers, so much so that it inspired me to pursue a BFA at the School of Visual Arts in Graphic Design in New York. While there, I was introduced to the world
of publishing by my teachers, Chip Kidd and Michael Ian Kaye, and began designing book covers. 

My work has appeared in various design annuals and been featured in the AIGA’s 50 Books / 50 Covers exhibition. Seeking to expand my design and art direction skills, I began to look outside the box, outside of my familiar New York comfort zone. So I traveled, both to well–and little–known places, gleaning inspiration from food, fashion, and art cultures across the globe. What started as a hobby has now become my way of life. As of today, I have been to over 60 countries across all 7 continents, and I truly feel that it has immeasurably strengthened my design aesthetic and versatility.
