Francis joined the Board of Urban Ink in 2021 and is active in the not-for-profit community in various volunteer advisory and board roles, including currently serving as a Knowledge Philanthropist with Vantage Point, an Advisor with The Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation, and a Board Director with One to One Literacy Society.  He also brings over 25 years of experience working in law and media, including as a partner in the Vancouver office of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, and in senior legal roles with FOX Networks Group and Walt Disney Television International in Asia.

Francis is grateful for all the opportunities he has had to learn and grow from many different cultures, having been born in Japan to Chinese parents, grown up in Vancouver and studying and working in Montreal, New York, Toronto and Hong Kong.  He and his family are happy to be back and settled in Vancouver on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
