Hi, My name is Sijia Luo (Pinyin/English), or 罗丝佳 (Chinese) and 羅絲佳 (Traditional Chinese/Japanese), also らしか (Hiragana). So, let's make things simple, call me Sijia.

I make animation short films and always design the sound and make background music by myself. This way, I can convey what I am thinking directly to the audience.

Making something move is more enjoyable for me.
