About

Emigrating from Shanghai at age ten, I unknowingly named myself after Lazy Susan when I played dictionary roulette with zero understanding of English. I still regret my choice but have not found another name that feels right. I am now based in California and manages all design, communications, marketing, and digital projects at the International Documentary Association (IDA).

Previously, I worked on various environmental and climate change campaigns in Washington, DC and London. With a decade of experience serving nonprofits, I am interested in utilizing my multidisciplinary skillset to support causes that advance the dream for a just, clean future for all wildlife and people.
