New media designer and developer

“I'm a programming artist.”

New media design and development is what I specialize in. As you'll see in my resumé below, I have a passion for creating secure, friendly and International web site designs and solutions. You can see examples of them in my portfolio.

I'm not just a designer, I love programming, too. I'm very often seen refining my actionscript or tweaking some CSS while Photoshop is open in the back with designs for a web site showing through. Oh, did I mention I love my PC and my Mac.

I'm from Hong Kong, but thanks to the Internet, I've worked worldwide from here. So if you're looking for someone who is a wild and creative new media designer but also loves the logical thinking of new media programming, then I'm confident that I'm the right person.
Feel free to contact me if you have a project that you'd like me to help out in or just want to share some ideas.
