Born in Taiwan but grew up in Canada, James completed his education and began his career in North America before moving to Shanghai where he has resided for many years. This experience gave him a global perspective and the ability to merge values from Western and Chinese cultures in his work.
Since his school years, James believes that design has the power to transform people’s lives and the planet. This belief is shown in his career and projects and is why he is passionate about his work.
Besides indulging in the creative process of design, he enjoys mentoring staff, building high-caliber teams, and constantly improving platforms for creative ideas and people to thrive. James is a frequent speaker with a good sense of humor and down-to-earth attitude. He now lives with his wife, two girls and two cats.
