With pen and paper in hand, Michael Liang explores and records the world around him. The desire to travel and seek out newness is a primary driver in his life, but so is the need to return home and transfer his inspirations to paper. He believes that storytelling, active listening, and the visual arts are tools for addressing today's social and environmental issues.
