BIOGRAPHY & RESUMÉS





hello.

My name is Julie Chow. I was born in New Jersey, but I grew up in China and Singapore. I went to UC Davis for graphic design and Academy of Art University in San Francisco for film school. I currently live in San Francisco, and work at Minted.

I am a graphic designer, writer, director, actor, photographer and singer-songwriter.
I have designed posters for film festivals and holiday cards for online stationary retailers, written and directed short films in both English and Mandarin, appeared on episodes of Trauma (NBC) and I (Almost) Got Away With It (Investigation Discovery), and released an album of music on iTunes. I also enjoy taking photos with my Canon 60D, knitting and repurposing old clothing.

The ultimate goal with my work is to entertain and provoke thought, regardless of the medium. aeswf stands for "an elephant strewn with feathers," from a childhood nickname and a "feather" for each of my creative endeavors.
