Hi Stephen, I'm a British-Chinese actor/writer currently looking to extend my existing network and specifically interested in connecting with future artistic partners, colleagues, or potential collaborators. I am developing a cannon of work which at its heart will have the history, memories, viewpoint of being Chinese in the UK. I'd like to be able to connect either on Facebook and or LinkedIn (I'm also on Visible Chinese too)
