Most recently I was the Social Media Specialist at First Leap China, from January 2018 to February 2020. It’s an education company based in Beijing, with locations all over China.

I built and maintained their website, wrote and edited blog post articles, and travelled around China doing photography for them.

Most of the articles are travel-based, and I have my own website where I write about travel and photography.

I wrote an article about Iceland for the Olympus Passion photography website and magazine.

Here are a few samples of other blog posts:

I am mostly interested in blogging about photography, travel, or Apple technologies.
