Welcome to my creative outlet.

About

I'm Emily, a recent grad from NYU's media and communications program. I originally started my website as a visual portfolio for employers during my hunt for internships. 

While it still serves that purpose today (as I hunt for a job this time around), I've picked up writing and producing short-form videos. At first, I wasn't sure what to write or shoot about, but after speaking with my friends who are still swimming through hundred-dollar textbooks, I figured I'd write about my life post-college and contribute my two-cents on the place of Asian-Americans in this convoluted nation. 

So welcome! This is where I share the world through my eyes.

NICE TO MEET YOU

Emily Mei Liu about profile

Hi, my name is Emily and welcome to my creative outlet.

I currently work at the global advertising agency Wavemaker for the Paramount Theatrical account. When I'm not executing campaigns, you will most likely find me in a boba shop, ice cream shop, or the latest experiential pop-up LA has to offer. Chances are, I'm armed with my lovely camera, Konnie (cause she's a NiKON).

"Mei" (媚) is my Chinese name, which means charming. My paternal grandfather gave me that name because of what it meant, but also because it rhymed with my mom's Chinese name (she's also a Mei, but a different character 玫). "Mei" is actually not on my birth certificate, but I use it for my digital presence since there are thousands of "Emily Liu's" out there.
