Hi!

I am Ray Zhang. This is my journey.

 


 

2000

With help from my mom, hosted an exhibition of my eraser collection in school. The collection is now 300+ pieces & still growing.

Was told that I have Tourette's and ADHD.


2007

Moved to Pune, India alone to attend a Catholic boarding school.

Cried a lot.


2009

Became a boxing champion and House Prefect.


2012

Left India and moved to Oberlin, OH to start college.


2014

Hosted a couple of music shows at the college radio station playing music from East Asian ethnic minorities.

Broke an ankle playing in an inflatable castle.


2016

My plan of becoming an investment banker got derailed by my passion for art - photography in particular.

Worked as a centerfold photographer for a student-run tabloid and taught a semester-long one-credit college course called Zombie Survival 101.

Graduated from college.


2017

Chopped my hair and moved to Richmond, VA to study advertising and design from scratch.

Best decision ever made.
