About Me


I take photo for you, and you take me travel the city!


Hi every friend! I’m a Chinese photographer and focus on sports and portrait. I took pictures for many celebrities and sport stars, like the vice president of U.S. Joseph Robinette “Joe” Biden and the NBA star Dwyane Tyrone Wade. But my most FAVORITE is to take photos for my FRIENDS! We communicate, share and inspire with each other. Photography is a language and would you do me a favor to be my next model? :)


The planet is not lonely!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Oh, I worked with the DC man in 2011 in Beijing and Shanghai. And then I visited him the next year as a couchsurfing!


My first couchsurfing experience is in Washington,D.C. in June,2012. My husband and I stayed with an American young couple. The man is a camera man and the woman is a rock singer. We took photos and cooked for each other, we share ideas about photography, music and life with different culture backgrounds. And we took part in their friends' party! BBQ, art, and beautiful view of DC! From the beginning, we like strangers, but 4 days later, we became a whole-life friends! This is my couchsurfing story!
