I am from Shanghai China. I had been working as a journalist for the last 5 years. In these working days, I really enjoy digging and shooting news films all over China. 

It feels really fascinating to travel from place to place as a journalist and it is quite different from traveling as a tourist. Because when we travel like tourists, we choose a place and we expect to see all these beautiful landscapes. But when we go on a trip for working, all these fabulous scenes are just like an extra award to us.

As a 27-year-old human male, I really like almost all kinds of sports. My favorite soccer team is Arsenal from north London. I prefer Houston Rockets to New York Knicks. And I always enjoy New York Yankees’ baseball game.

Talking of my favorite film, I think it is definitely “A Bright Summer Day” directed by an unbelievably talented Taiwan director called Edward Yang. The story is about a teenage killer in Taiwan in the 1960’s. I recommend it to all who is curious about Asian culture.

I also love animals, and I plan to adopt a cat in a few weeks. Hope I will get a cute clever kitten.
