Professionally, I'm passionate about development, growth, and sustainability - including growth strategy, branding, sales & marketing, product development, and user experience.

Personally, I'm inspired by meeting new people, traveling, continuous learning, public service, and establishing valuable relationships with everyone that I work with.

I consult small and medium-size startups.
Startups reach out to me for my Gen-Z perspective and experience to tackle their audience's problems. Others work with me for my extensive background in social media (Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram) as well as my understanding of the Chinese market. I am fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, and English. My network of knowledge and connections in China, coupled with my communication abilities, allows me to help businesses reach the world's largest market that many others had failed to reach.

My engagements involves speaking at youth entrepreneurship events to conducting one-on-one strategy planning for social media marketing campaigns. Recent examples include speaking at SAGE Canada about the ideas behind marketing Phoneblok, an eco-friendly cell phone, as well as leading the marketing campaign for the Vent Social Network, which ranked in the top 100 apps for the Social Networking category and had an average of 13k installs per day under my management. My expertise is in helping companies understand their audience by providing my insight on consumer behavior on different social media platform and developing strategies to engage with them through various forms of digital content.
