HYF was born in Hong Kong. His family was originated in Nan Hai of Guangdong, a place he never paid a visit. At younger age, he was educated under colonial education. He finished his university studies in USA majoring in Drama. In the past 30 years, He has been utilizing theatre as cultural bridges, learning to unlearn the peculiar relationship of the self and the likely bonding with the surrounding social, political and cultural issues and phenomena. He believes in art-in-actions, through which to re-examine the unique cultural and social enigma of Hong Kong, hoping that alternative insight to refurbish independent thinking among common folks could be implemented through art and social works. 


HYF was the founder and artistic director of the former Theatre Fanatico (1996-2010). In 2011, he established Ho Bit Goon, a cultural hub for the arts. He loves all aspects of arts and travelling. He also plays a variety of roles in art and theatre making, from producing, directing, playwriting, designing to curating special projects for theatre-in-education and cultural planning. He has been a strong believer in using poetry, theatre, painting, music and storytelling to construct particular art-in-actions to construct better cultural exploratory works looking into the social and cultural phenomena both in Hong Kong and the Mainland of China.
