A glimpse of me
Life is too short to just wonder ‘what if’. Our minds are constantly firing signals (right/wrong, true/false) and by default we always tend towards predicting the worst case scenario that will stop us from doing.  

Finding myself growing out of my mistakes in the past, helped me realize the importance of improving self doubt, and understanding that ‘fear’, is really just a word, a default signal that’s been empowered by society, constantly telling us “Don’t do that, you will definitely fail”. “Do this instead, that’s what ‘EVERYBODY’ is doing”. I do not enjoy failure, but I seek the reason for why I failed and enjoy the process of climbing back up and do it again.

One of my favorite quotes from Bruce Lee: “Be water my friend”, water can be many forms and shapes, I believe we are capable of been water and forever changing and coping with challenges if we change the ‘What if’ to ‘Lets Try it’; and if we fail, we try it again.

我是一個極具創造動力的人, 腦力激盪及學習原創力的延伸是每個人都可及的能力,但要有國際觀及開發新的動力來源及策略的組織與實現,並非人人可及,我在生物科技及2D跟3D動畫雖然取得二個碩士學位,但我深信我的創作思維及對結合生物科技與動畫的潛力,必須有良好的工作環境及有鋭力眼光的夥伴,一起研發和他人不同的思路及巿場之區隔,我的自信及對自己工作的責任感及團隊的合作精神,也是我未來工作成長的最大動力與資源。這一切塑造了一個又可靠又思維發散的我
