He/Him/His

As a Chinese cisgender little man residing in Oakland, California, I bring a unique perspective to disability advocacy and multimedia communication. Despite facing chronic health conditions and multiple disabilities, I have remained dedicated to fostering connections within my community and empowering others to achieve independence.

With a Bachelor’s and Master of Arts degree in Multimedia Communications and an Associate’s degree in American Sign Language, I possess a comprehensive skill set that enables me to effectively communicate and engage with diverse audiences. I am passionate about utilizing photography and videography to convey powerful messages and tell compelling stories.

My journey into disability advocacy began when I joined the Center for Independent Living, Inc. (CIL) in Berkeley, California, in the summer of 2012. Before my tenure at CIL, I had limited exposure to the Independent Living Movement. However, inspired by the encouragement of a college friend who worked at CIL, I seized the opportunity to contribute to an organization that supports individuals with disabilities and older adults in achieving independence.

Since joining CIL, I have held various roles, including youth mentor, travel trainer, receptionist, and information and referral specialist. Through these diverse experiences, I have deepened my understanding of the unique challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and have honed my ability to provide meaningful support and resources.

Outside of my professional endeavors, I find immense joy in fostering connections with friends and family. Communication lies at the heart of my personal and professional life, serving as a cornerstone for building relationships and driving positive change within my community.

In every facet of my work, I am committed to advocating for inclusivity, accessibility, and empowerment. Through multimedia storytelling and compassionate advocacy, I strive to amplify the voices of marginalized communities and create a more equitable and inclusive society for all.

Fun Fact

If you could be any animal, what animal would you be and why? I’m not sure what animal I’d like to be, but I love dogs (as a pet), elephants, giraffes, and lions (as wild animals). I’m not sure why, though.
