Hello! I am a visual journalist who loves talking with people and sharing their stories via words, audio, images and illustrations.

I embrace challenges. In April 2009, I produced my first flash-based web story from scratch in a day without prior knowledge of required software skills. I also conquered the Half Dome, one of the most arduous hikes in Yosemite National Park, by walking and climbing for 14 hours.

I never stop discovering new hobbies. I have plunged into fields ranging from cooking to language learning; from piano and violin to Chinese calligraphy and watercolor painting; from jogging and swimming to hiking and dancing.

This is me. Unlimited.
