Biography

Jade/Lake (they/he) carries multiple and fragmented lives. They think of themselves as a bridge connecting monstrosities, deviances, nature, and technology together. He wants to preserve things like Cantonese profanities, clear the fox spirit's bad name, learn more about mushroom networks. (By the time you read this, I might have already changed interests. Let's just talk/I'm probably posting what will concern me that moment on Instagram stories anyways).
