What I Do

I work at the intersection of creative arts and business, aiming to make music and arts more enjoyable and accessible. I'm a pianist, writer and Chinaphile.


I worked on the Executive Strategy team at Lincoln Center, where I crafted strategy for digital distribution, a new international consulting venture, and fundraising initiatives. At Roland Berger, I worked with Chinese state-owned enterprises and multinational corporations on corporate strategy, market entry, product branding, and organizational restructuring. I'm fluent in Mandarin. I performed a piano recital in Carnegie Hall. I'm cofounder and CEO of Sonation, where we're revolutionizing and democratizing the way music is made.
