About me
As a recent university graduate with diverse experience across media-oriented industries including radio, arts publishing, art galleries, fashion, and interior design and architecture, I am keen to pursue career opportunities in a wider media and cultural landscape. My international upbringing in Hong Kong, the UK and USA, together with strong language skills, have given me a global perspective, curiosity and adaptive problem solving skills, which I intend to apply to a career in arts and media. My passion for electronic music production, freelance film scoring, and curation of arts and music events has given me a strong foundation upon which to build upon and apply my skills while maintaining a balance between cultural sensitivity and commercial enterprise.
