Chris has worked in research, interpretation and scriptwriting for museums, public exhibitions, and corporate communication for the past 20 years.

After returning from post-graduate study at the Taiwan Normal University, Chris started as a researcher at the world-renowned MET Studio in 1992 and went on to run the company’s Hong Kong office between 1995 and 1997. In 2000, he was appointed a Director of MET Studio UK and Managing Director of MET Studio Hong Kong (2003 -2006). During this time, he played an integral role in the planning and execution of all MET Studio’s projects – most notably the Drug InfoCentre and the Hong Kong Wetland Park for the Hong Kong Government. For its work in exporting British design services, the company won the Queen's Award for Industry in 2004.

In August 2006, Chris established WINKLE-PICKER to provide interpretive and script-writing services to design companies and client teams worldwide, but particularly between London, Hong Kong and China. It has completed Interpretive Plans for the upcoming Hong Kong Planning and Infrastructure Gallery for the Hong Kong SAR Government, the new Giant Panda experience and Goldfish Pavilion at Ocean Park, the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) Gallery in Hong Kong, and the Land Transport Authority (LTA), FusionWorld (the Agency for Science, Technology & Research (A*STAR) Showcase), the Singapore City Gallery (for the Urban Redevelopment Authority) in Singapore and the interpretive areas of the Central Police Station – one of the most prestigious heritage sites in Hong Kong.

Working between London, Singapore and Hong Kong, WINKLE-PICKER allows Chris to provide his experience in the full range of interpretive planning and writing services for clients including designers, theme parks, museums, governments, architects and contractors from Europe to Asia.
