  • ‘Radio Neighbourhood’ (2021) awarded the Ideas and Pioneers Fund by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and more.

As a creative technologist, Ghost experiments with the use of interactive technology and immersive visuals to generate unique spectating experiences. His notable works include:

  • ‘Bitter Moves Sweet Truths’ (2023), three-screen projection and live feed video techniques, shortlisted for the Untapped Award

  • ‘Cart Noodle Show’ (2021), an interactive game show over Zoom with live animation and pre-recorded videos

  • ‘I’M NOT SURE’ and ‘Meniscus’ (2019), instant messenger audience interaction

As an all-rounded digital wizard, Ghost delivers digital solutions for both creative and business projects and specialises in creating open structures to facilitate meaningful collaboration. He is an analyst programmer specialising in Android development with Model-view-viewmodel (MVVM) architecture pattern and website development. He designs projections, runs creative productions, operates stage shows, edits videos and photos, and a lot more. He holds a BEng in Computer Science, HKUST.

Beyond the above, Ghost lends his skills to projects as a performer and choreographer.
