I am from Taiwan, and I have resident London(2015-2017) and New York(2010-2015). I am always seeking challenges in boundaries, I am grateful to have chances to stretch beyond my comfort zone across cities, countries and industries. I nurturing my foundation in physical and internet community to better understand the principal formula. And the journey never stops.
I grew up in the manufacturing family business before most of the factories shifted to China in the 2000s. I was influenced by my father as an enterprise product maker. I love to draw when I was 5, I won many prizes since then. Tell a story is what I am always good at, at age 16, I won my first photo prize by illustrating three pictures. During university, I learned visual theory and concept developer from my BFA in fine arts at the National University of Tainan. In 2008, I design a 7 days child experience workshop where I combine education and local environment after I teach at a children art tutorial class. The following year, 2009, I founded an Airbnb style project, Jump%In-between, in my home for short-term lodging for people to experiencing escape in life. I learned Airbnb at 2011. My interview ability develops from this project. I attended MFA in digital media at Pratt Institute, where I gained a strong tech foundation in the digital world, interactive knowledge and ways of research. In 2012, I directed and curated, My Little Space, to invest people about their private/home space in order to demonstrate New York.
