I was born and raised in Tianjin, China, city of millions, and moved to a small town in the American midwest at age nine. Since then, my experience of working in New York City and Beijing draws from this state of in-betweenness. Hyper Island  a creative business school where design thinking, digital strategy, and group reflection went hand in hand  deepened my interest in team dynamics and development. I've spoken on the topic at The Future of Work London and a narrative of the Chinese Internet at SheSays. Currently, I'm working on a collection of short stories set in Beijing.
