About me

I am this ordinary, short asian person born and raised in this stunning, colorful country called Taiwan.  Many, many years ago, I dreamed of becoming a stand-up comedian because watching people laugh is incredibly soul-lifting, but I couldn’t even tell a good joke. Then I discovered the magic of food that brings flavors to people’s lives. I vowed to be a chef until I almost cut off my ten fingers. Finally, when I got my first camera, who I named “Baby Rico,” I learned that my true passion was capturing human emotion. I can never find the right words to tell you how my heart moves when I capture and preserve the moment.
