Hong Kong-raised and LA-based, I am a multi-hyphenated creative who has worked in media for as long as I can remember. I got my start at MTV Networks/Logo, where I sharpened my social media know-how doing online marketing for RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 1. Shortly after graduating from Cornell, I made my way back to the City of Angels, where I continue to call home. My passionate appreciation for the finer details and things in life began to take centerfold: A curated taste for high fashion, exquisite footwear, hotel hopping, immersive, intimate travel and gastronomic culinary experiences.

My penchant for androgynous clothing and unisex style caused a bit of commotion and controversy along the way, but certainly paved the way to being featured on Buzzfeed, Refinery29, WhoWhatWear and even GQ Thailand. I call this Styletelling - the art of merging style and personal identity through a visual dialogue about high fashion and lifestyle - from my heart to yours. 

Now, I get incorporate my love for fashion and creative content into a full-time profession. No, not just Instagramming (you can follow me there if you'd like), but actually producing unique content, digital strategies and editorial photography for major brands. It's been a dream to be working with the likes of Luisa Via Roma, Louis Vuitton, Coach, Calvin Klein, Lexus, HP, Montblanc, amongst many others, as a digital personality, producer and consultant.
