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 Canon, 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.
