I am originally from the vibrant city of Chengdu, China, renowned for its pandas, culinary delights, and Chinese baijiu. Growing up amidst family gatherings filled with both sumptuous feasts and spirited conversations laid the foundation for my appreciation of the finer things in life.
My school journey led me to Canada (Montreal and Vancouver) for seven years, including a transformative semester experiencing school life in Europe. Graduated from the Sauder Business school in University of British Columbia in Vancouver, I initially ventured into the professional realm in Canada before making Hong Kong my home in 2007. It was moving to Hong Kong that I discovered my true passion—wine. Joining a wine trading firm marked the beginning of an incredible learning journey. Every day became an opportunity to deepen my understanding of wine, leading me to complete my WSET Diploma.
For me, wine is more than a beverage; it's a magical force that brings people together. I cherish the connections forged with clients who have evolved into dear friends over the past 10+ years working in the wine industry. This interpersonal aspect is a driving force behind my dedication to this craft. Outside the realm of wine, my passions span photography, gemology, art, and travel—an appreciation for all the beauty life has to offer. In March 2015, I joined Berry Bros. & Rudd, where I continue to be part of an exceptional team, sharing the joy of wine with enthusiasts around the globe.
