I'm a Chinese video journalist and TV producer who has 7+ years of experience working in top-tier international newsrooms with the BBC, the South China Morning Post and the Associated Press. I have managed crews in a wide array of major breaking news events in Asia and have produced several acclaimed BBC documentaries. After moving to New York, I have produced, shot and edited two short documentaries on fentanyl and Uygur refugees. I'm also directing a one-hour documentary for Channel News Asia.
