Born in Macau, an amateur creator in Macau, obtained a master’s degree in education from the Social Work Department of Fu Jen Catholic University, and a master’s degree in Class of Social and Cultural Career of The Department of Adult and Continuing Education from Taiwan Normal University. My research has been engaged in social innovation, social enterprises, Cultural institution, etc.
