About Me.


I am passionate about the crypto industry and its developments worldwide, particularly from a public policy and legal perspective. I strongly believe in effective communication via content creation and I enjoy the creative process of doing so.

For the past year, I was the Director of Business Development for Messari, a NYC-based crypto research company. Prior to Messari, I've done stints at the Bank of China, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Bank of America, Oak Hill Advisors, and the U.S. State Department. I hold a J.D. from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and a B.A. in International Relations (combo of economics + history + political science + language) from Johns Hopkins University. 

I grew up moving between California, mainland China (Kunming, Yunnan Province), and Hong Kong. I am fluent in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese. 

Things I love:

Reading, yoga, boxing, music, traveling, and anything else that can enable my continuous growth. If you have book/music/restaurant/travel recommendations, please do send them my way :)
