As a journalist, the center of my stories is always "people".

I enjoy doing long-form feature with engaging sounds and visuals that bring my audience to the scene.

I am always keen to explore and present how social phenomena and politics impact people in every way.

Issues I have covered include Medicaid coverage gap, bridges deterioration in Missouri, transgender surgery, lack of diversity in law enforcement agencies, impact of closure of event center...

Here are some examples:

Hunting for the Long-Lost Steamboat Malta - a journey to find impressive collection of America's history

Missouri State Highway Patrol Struggle to meet minority numbers

Gov Nixon and FFA Members Show Mixed Feelings for the Future of Missouri Agriculture

Events center's closure forces shows out of town

Currently I work as assistant producer at KBIA Intersection. I am also working on some micro-documentary projects.

I write print stories as well. Click here to see my clips at Columbia Missourian.

I am constantly honing my HTML and CSS skills.

Here is the sample of a newspaper website I redesigned and coded with two others. I also designed a responsive mobile page for a news project.

Back in China, I worked at Tianjin TV station for a brand-new reality show.

I am also an interpreter and mediator for multiple delegations of Chinese major media networks' visits in U.S.
