Feeling really nostalgic about China. Someone please #throwmeback. Also, sorry I’ve been busy with my internship so I haven’t been liking and viewing all your guys’ photos as much! 怀念魔都~ // 2013.07.17 // #zaishanghai #onblurpose #lightsatnight #bokehlicious #urbangiants #shanghai #vscocam #夜景 #魔都 #上海 #中国 #밤 #상해 #중국  (在 陆家嘴 Lujiazui)

@thereallukes just moved out of SF, and everyone in SF is going to miss hanging out with him. One of the nicest guys I’ve met through Instagram. See you soon, buddy! 😭👋 // #postthepeople #makeportraits #postmoreportraits #sanfranvsco #vscocam #人像 #샌프란시스코  (在 Basic Training Hayes Valley At Proxy)

I heard @expedia is throwing people back to their favorite summer memories. Which means I’m going to try as much as I can to get a trip back to Shanghai, where I’ve spent some of the best summers of my life exploring the culture of my motherland and basking in the glow of ultra modernity. I’m not being sponsored by Expedia. I just miss Shanghai :) // #ThrowMeBack #urbangiants #lightsatnight #zaishanghai #shanghai #vscocam #夜景 #魔都 #上海 #中国 #밤 #샹하이 #중국  (at Shanghai IFC |上海国金中心)

Neon Navigator // Special thanks to the well-dressed girl walking down the thoroughfare without staring at me on the ground.

My first time ever teaching a class tonight was a success! So glad that the students learned a lot and enjoyed the mobile photography workshop. Thanks for coming out! It feels good to educate people about something I love. Shout outs to my partner @cyeetheworld who did an awesome job teaching alongside me, @fullosophie for organizing and giving us this opportunity, and @craftsmanwolves @dodocase & @artifactuprising for providing the goods! 🙏 Keep an eye out for more Fullosophie workshops I might teach in the future. 😉 // #fullosophieworkshops #onthetable #vscocam #甜品 #美食 #먹스타그램 #맛스타그램  (at Craftsman and Wolves)

◻️ Thanks, David, for letting me chill at Square yesterday! Everything in there is square-shaped and it’s amazing. David’s a good guy and he chose a good company to work at. // #makeportraits #peoplesaura #postthepeople #silhouettesseries #vscocam #方 #人像 #스퀘어 (at Square Inc. HQ)

The Winding Road in the Wind // Life is like this windy, winding road I saw with some awesome IGers a few days ago at our #hellawindymeet: full of twists and turns and obstacles. Today I started my first design internship and turned the corner into a new phase of life, and I couldn’t be more excited and grateful. Pardon the cheesy caption. I was just eating some awesome raclette cheese over roasted potatoes. 我今天开始实习了!// #invitingroads #chasingsunrise #sunrisemarauders #vscocam #风景 #日出 #풍경 #아침햇살 #해돋이 (at Slacker Hill)

Glad I got to spend time with Scott before he left for NYC. He’s an inspiring photographer that I met many months ago on Mt. Tamalpais. Follow his cross country road trip to the east coast at @scottborrero. See you around, Scott! // Portraits of people on dead/alive trees: #makeportreets (at Mount Davidson)
