Hello,

 

Thank you for visiting.

Born in Hong Kong, raised in Toronto, spent some time in Miami, Minneapolis, Singapore, worked his way up to The Empire State - Ron is an Art Director who is based in the “dirty heart of Manhattan” that is Chinatown.

As an idea-first creative, Ron thrives on inventing campaign big ideas that root from insights and transcends through traditional, digital, and social mediums.

If you’d like to understand his thinking a little more, feel free to reach out and debate him about any of the following hypotheses he has in mind:

  • Why Este Haim is the biggest contributor to the sister band, Haim.

  • How the Toronto Raptors created the current pop culture we live in.

  • Who, what, when, where, why, how about Joe’s Pizza: one’s truest tell of character.
