I am an architect, trained and studied in US, and currently living in my hometown Shanghai. I've been living in LA for the past 13 years, and consider myself a local too. Movies, animals and travel are my biggest passion, that's tell you something about me. Can't access now, I felt kind of lost in the city I grew up. Recently my biggest passion is my new born son, a healthy strong ten months old little man.
