Born and raised in northeastern China to parents who taught English, I grew up speaking Chinese and English. Ten years ago, I moved to New England to finish high school. I got my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in chemical engineering on the East Coast. I am currently working on my Ph.D. degree in California.

Despite my engineering schooling, I have a profound interest in translation due to the influence of my father. From a young age, I was encouraged to help out with various translation works. Up to the present day, I have translated the following published works:

1. The Oriental Magic Art series, Journey to the West Volume 1 (连环画课堂 [中英文本] 西游记 1)

2. Gil's All Fright Diner (夜店惊魂)

Recently I have come to realize that I miss the feeling of accomplishment associated with finishing translating a piece of work and knowing that the original work would now have a broader audience. I know that I do not have professional training in translation and I am more than happy to start off my translation career by picking up low-pay assignments.
