We learned about the story of Designer Cecilia in Fernlander Spotlight last time, 聚焦西顾人：可爱的设计师小美女藏不住了. Now let us get to know FXG Oversea Social Media Manager Max and her thoughts about life and VR!
Some things about personal life
What was the life journey you took that brought you to FXG?
从幼儿园开始，我就知道自己擅长技术。我在幼儿园时开始用Power Point设计动画加超链接的视频游戏。 长大后，我开始从事社交媒体管理和营销方面的各种工作，主要是在艺术行业。 在一家古董艺术品经销商那里，3D打印工作室等等地方工作过。 大学生活，我在世界各地旅行了五年，结合当地环境研究各种全球性问题，致力于获得全球研究的专业学位并完成我的辅修艺术与传播学。后来，我决定在中国待一年。我来杭州的第一个月就爱上了这里。通过一位曾在FXG做视频编辑的共同朋友得知了这个工作机会。两次面试之后，我应聘成功了，这是我梦寐以求的工作。 营销、科技、中国、游戏？ 还有什么比这更好的？！
I knew I was good at technology since preschool. I started designing animated, hyperlinked video games in Power Point when I was in kindergarten. Upon young adulthood, I began working various jobs in Social Media Management and Marketing, mostly in the arts industry. I worked for a vintage art dealer, a 3D-printing studio and more. For university, I traveled around the world for five years, studying various global issues from local contexts, working to earn my degree in Global Studies and my minor in Arts & Communication. Later, I decided to spend one year in China. I fell in love with Hangzhou within my first month. I quickly found the job opportunity through a mutual friend who was working there as a video editor. After two interviews, I was offered the position and accepted it upon realizing that it was my dream job. Marketing, tech, China and games? What could be better?!
What do you do to relax after work？
I spend a lot of time on social media during work, so ultimately I spend time on my PERSONAL social media profiles after work. I also enjoy walking around in nature, seeing live music, and exploring cities.

Who do you think has the most influence on you, or who can give you energy to solve problems? Why?
对我来讲，狗狗就是治愈系。跟一只可爱的狗狗待十分钟等于给了我几个小时的鼓励哈哈！ 我也经常联系我的妈妈、姐姐、最好的朋友和伙伴。 他们在我的生命中都有着不可或缺之处！ 还有我们的FXG团队，他们支持我，大家在一起很开心，也经常有非常有趣的方式让彼此保持动力。
Dogs are always very healing to me. Ten minutes with a nice dog can give me hours of encouragement haha! I often turn to my mother, sister, best friend and partner. I keep them in my life for a good reason! The FXG team is also very supportive. We have fun and also have very interesting ways of keeping each other motivated.
Have you had any fun things to share with us recently?
Well I’ve been living in New York City for the past six months, so there is always a lot going on! I recently went to a party at the headquarters of a desktop holographic display manufacturer to celebrate the United Nation’s ‘Day of Light’, and say farewell to their office before they expand to a larger one!
How do you feel about living in China? What is the impact on your life?
我爱中国，尤其是杭州。 这个城市是如此多样化，满眼绿色。 我去过的城市没有哪一个能如此将自然与基础设施完美融合。 在那里很容易感到平静。 吃的也很好，我喜欢在那的中外友人。 我以前从未在哪个地方遇到过这么多不同国家的人，而且每天都能让我学到新东西。 我觉得我得立刻点一些美式中餐！
I love China, especially Hangzhou. The city is so diverse, and full of greenery. I have never been to a city anywhere in the world that has so much nature mixed into the infrastructure. It is easy to feel peaceful there. The food constantly keeps me happy, and I love the people, both local and international. I have never met so many people from different countries in one place before, and it continues to teach me new things everyday. I think I will order some American-Chinese food right now!
What’s your dream?
My dream is to utilize social and immersive medias to promote social change. Both outlets hold so much power, and I believe if we set our minds to it, we can use them to help save the planet from ecological distress, as well as build empathy and diminish biases.
Some things about work
What is your favorite project you have been involved with at FXG?
Well I don’t work directly with videos, though I do have a lot of fun showcasing our new LAB6, as well as some of the major events we have hosted such as the LAB6 Future of Immersive Video Conference and our parties, including Lunar Chase and Halloween! It’s a lot of fun to build hype about things that I believe in.
What do you think VR will do for the future?
对于VR与教育，包括同理心方面，我做了一些广泛的研究。 我认为VR有力量，能够教导人们在教科书中学习不到的东西，具有高沉浸性。 VR还有潜力让你对他人设身处地、感同身受，至少在那一瞬间如此。
I have done extensive research on VR for education, including empathy. I think VR has the power to teach people things that you cannot find inside of a textbook, with high rates of immersion. VR has the potential to put you into the shoes of another person, enabling you to feel what it is like to be them, at least for a moment.
What is your favorite movie? Why?
Right now? I like ‘Under the Silver Lake’. It had me completely confused, curious, and a little bit uncomfortable for the entire experience, and that is what makes a good movie, in my opinion.
What are your expectations for FXG?
FXG已经是高清VR等很多方面的领导者。 我希望我们能够使用手里的工具创造更多令人惊叹的内容，从而产生积极的影响。 事实上我们已经有一个这样的项目啦...... 敬请期待 :)
FXG is already a leader in high-quality VR resolution and more. I expect us to use the tools that we have to create amazing content that will make a positive impact. We already have a project like this in the works… you’ll have to wait to see what it is :)
