I'm a photographer, director and strategist with a decade of experience working in social media and journalism.

I spent 11 years at CNN, where I helped launched CNN iReport, CNN's participatory journalism project. I also led CNN.com's Asia/Pacific team based in Hong Kong. After CNN, I spent a year working as Communications Manager at Instagram, based in San Francisco. 

I have more than 600K followers on Instagram. My brand influencer work includes projects for General Electric, Ray Ban, TAG Heuer, Tiny Atlas Quarterly, Ford Motor Co, Cathay Pacific, Bloomingdales, Master & Dynamic, Travel Alberta, The Canadian Tourism Commission, and Hong Kong Tourism Board.

I co-founded HK Instayay, and organized the first ever InstaMeet in Hong Kong. I helped lead more than 20 Instagram photo walks during my time there and in 2012 gave a TedX talk about my experience.
