Contrary to the typical image of an accountant, I love adventures and to explore new things. I find it echoing with the charm of making documentaries - to be genuine, to experience different lives and to get to know all kinds of people around the world. With my curiosity and enthusiasm in documentaries, I hope my experience working with Mandarin Film helps pursue what I want in life.
