About me

Hi, I’m Chuxin 👋

I was born and raised in China, and currently based in Sydney, Australia.

Working as a data analyst at Canva, and formerly in leveraged finance in Hong Kong. I'm interested in reading, taking photos, and travelling; also learning painting and guitar for fun.

About the newsletter - cantabile

At the moment, cantabile is the newsletter form of my website where you can get regular updates from my latest blog posts in your inbox.

I’m genuinely interested in a broad range of topics, and will try to write and share my learnings as much as I can (you can find out more on why I started blogging again and some topics I cover in this post).

How did I come up with the name cantabile?

Truth be told, I’m really bad at naming. This site is just named after me.

However, this word always has a place in my mind, which I first came across from a Japanese drama called Nodame Cantabile. I really enjoyed watching it as a kid, and the word itself is simply beautiful.

In music, cantabile [kanˈtaːbile], an Italian word, means literally “singable” or “songlike”. In instrumental music, it is a particular style of playing designed to imitate the human voice.

I hope everyone that happens to be here enjoys reading the newsletters, just like listening some chill music in a cozy afternoon.
