In need of a new description for your favorite social media profile? Generate your own three-part bio here!! (2016)

I'm a Chinese-American animator, video producer, and one time game-maker, orignally from Minneapolis, currently based in NYC. Commercially, I work as a motion graphics designer at Great Big Story, previously at Quartz and NPR. I'm interested in nonfiction storytelling and explainer animation, especially at the intersection of art and Internet culture.

In my personal work, I'm inspired by the early web, sketch comedy, short stories, psychology, and surrealism. I once wore a mustache on camera and all my friends said I looked like Mario. I'd like to make a movie one day.
