Originally from Shanghai, China, I'm a multimedia journalist practicing visual storytelling across various platforms in the United States.
When I need to capture subtle details to advance the narrative of a story, I turn to photography. Elements within the still frame, composition, color or exposure, are personal to me.
When a story is action-packed, emotionally compelling or visually interesting, videos are my go-to medium as I'm constantly looking for creative ways to shoot and edit. I draw inspiration from documentaries, feature films and even anime.
I believe that good visual storytelling has no clear boundary. The act itself is ultimately about what's effective for the audience and what's not. The thoughtful decision-making and visual astuteness that apply to filmmaking, documentaries or animations also serve as sources of inspirations for photography, videography and graphics.
