Overview

When I started working, I had imagined myself to be printing books, magazines, maps, travel guides, and all sorts of paper-related products. Although I still have this huge passion for printed publications, I have come to realise that most of my services now take place in cyberspace.

As a self-publisher, I understand the constraints and difficulties of producing a book. I would be more than happy to share my design expertise and hear about your excitement at any stage of your book journey.

I am fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese.
