Born in China, raised in Canada, and having worked on a variety of commercial/video/film productions in both countries, I have both the language and the practical experience for writing, directing, and editing in all kinds of budgets and set-ups. I have also worked in content development for the Chinese independent film studio, Nezha Bros (representative work: Have a Nice Day (2017) — 54th Golden Horse Best Animation Feature winner, Main Competition in the 67th Berlin International Film Festival), and am interested in learning more about content development in North America.


Since moving back to Toronto after working for three years in Beijing, I’ve been exploring new roles. I am currently working in freelance roles, doing my own cinematography on top of directing and editing, for smaller commercial contracts.

I’d like to explore more in writing roles, for fiction and documentary projects, either in television or films.
