I am a photographer/photo art director, specializing in beauty cosmetics, skin care, beauty products and fashion Photography. I was born in Taiwan and briefly lived in China before moving to Hawaii. In 2010, I moved to San Francisco to pursue my BFA in Commercial Photography at the Academy of Art University. Since working in the industry, I have met some amazing people, and inspired me to continue growing as an artist. I am currently receiving a certificate in Graphic Design at UC Berkeley Extension. 

Most of my time is spent on the West Coast between Los Angeles and San Francisco.


Things I love: Matcha over coffee any day | Lots of traveling + being on the plane | experience different cultures and food | being active + staying active | warm sun to recharge my soul | spending the day at the beach | audio books only | yoga because it makes me feel empowered | believes in crystal energies and the universe
