China Simplified explores and demystifies the country and its people for the rest of the world. By shifting our collective attention beyond the 1% (hot-button issues in the mass media) to the other 99% (relevant conversations about history, language, business, and more), we hope to raise cultural awareness and increase mutual understanding.

Meng Cheng Productions
February 2005 - June 2006
Meng Cheng Productions developed the concept and produced the "China Joga Bonito" football (soccer) kids reality series with CCTV for Nike China. We recruited kids from ten cities and brought them to the Xiang He National Football Training Base to learn from Nike international stars and play 2-on-2 street ball. The winning kid traveled to Barcelona to meet Ronaldinho. The series broadcast on CCTV-5 and was the cornerstone of Nike China's World Cup marketing campaign.
