I am originally from northern China and have lived in the UK since 1987. My wife is European (English/German); we have been married for thirty years and our son is now a junior doctor with a degree in medicine from Glasgow University.
In my youth I performed dance, Beijing Opera and played both western and Chinese musical instruments on the stage. For all my life, my main interest is music composition.
However, since I had very good training in photography. Today, I am not just composing music, but also paint oil paintings and take photographs. I also have good skills in woodcarvings and carpentry. I am good at cooking and other DIY hobbies.
I would love to meet people in music, painting and any other forms of arts to share my creative pleasure.
I speak English and Mandarin.
