About me


Emmy nominated freelance wildlife and natural history cameraman/filmmaker specialised working in China and the Tibetan region, with extensive experience working with primates. With duo nationalities both British and Hong Kong Passports, I am capable of reading, writing and speaking fluent English, Mandarin and Cantonese. A multi-cultural background and good interpersonal skills enable me to maintain a good working relationship between the team and the locals in the field. 

Besides camera work, I do educational talks and presentations free of charge in China, aiming to educate the younger genaration on conservation and the natural world. 

I also like travelling to the middle of nowhere, photographing local wildlife and people, learning about the connections between people and nature as life goes on...
