Multimedia creative director.

Who is the angry asian?

Where does he come from?

An international expatriate of Vietnamese Korean parents, I was born in Saigon and raised in Malawi. After studying in South Africa and London I began an international career, working around the world in photography, production, design, advertising, and emerging technologies. My deep technical understanding was built in Africa, when visuals arts industries were in infancy and I had to be hands-on and everywhere for projects to work. Why angry? Because I am exacting in my tastes and believe if you are going to do something, do the best you can, all the time.

What can he do for you?
