What drives me?
My passion to bridge gaps between people and cultures.

To communicate better with colleagues and partners in China, it’s imperative to understand satellites of Chinese culture. Chinese businessmen think, feel and behave differently towards common western practices. Many of these nuances escape the western eye.
My job is to make sure you don’t lose because you don’t know.
