USA,  Richmond Academy of Art University,  Group Direct Study - Particles,  May 16, 2015
Had been working as a general artist/TD in the Animation and VFX industry in Taiwan for years, and decided to dig deeper in making FX for feature films and animations.
Currently studying MFA in VFX at AAU, specializing in dynamic FX simulations. Will be graduating in May 2015 and pursuing a career as an FX artist/TD in the future.

Works shown in the reel are projects that I had joined during my study at AAU, including my own thesis project: Run Away.
