When I was a young boy, I was considered obese. To turn the table around, I started running to lose weight. Surprisingly, whenever I ran, my brain couldn’t stop thinking about people’s complaints in ordinary life. Running became the fuel that helps me concept great ideas. As a result, I can’t help but become a creative/UX designer who loves to solve problems. Since then, I have ran more than 3,000 hours for ideas which have led to works that improve brands and the lives of others. I am ready to run until my cartilage on my knee is gone if it’s valuable for the world. Let’s make cool shits together, I’ll run for it.

(Fun Fact: I made a TED-ish speech about running in front of 600 people. Enjoy watching it with popcorn.)
