Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to be nurtured in art, social science and business in the broad context of contemporary culture, through project-led studies at Royal College of Art in London and HKUST, as well as fantastic positions with respected organisations and companies. 

This global upbringing has cultivated me to be delightful and inquisive in personality, self-motivated to deliver projects with a creative streak, and most importantly, to apply an integrated interdisciplinary approach. I believe these qualities are indispensable to launching a promising career in the heart of Hong Kong's international business scene.
