If given the chance I'd challenge Da Vinci and Michelangelo to a drawing battle. I'd still win even if I were to lose.

I'm an illustrator and Designer born and raised in Vancouver, BC. Recently I graduated from Capilano University's IDEA Program in 2022.

My interests are wide ranging: from anime, manga, comic books, dramas, music, and video games. I pretty much love anything that tells a good story and makes the gears in my brain spin. I can also speak 3 languages: Cantonese, English, and Japanese. Slowly but surely I'm learning Korean.

New technologies always get me excited too, I'm all over things that allow me to be more efficient; As a result, I spend a lot of time mastering a multitude of softwares. Other interests also include tinkering with computers and building my own workstation from scratch.
