Ashley Wu is an arts professional and licensed real estate agent who has been working with New York City's top creatives for nearly a decade. She is an avid fashion enthusiast, hip-hop head, art admirer, foodie and real estate addict. Like many of Tungsten Property's agents, she has a diverse education and professional background. In addition to real estate, Ashley is also a teen arts educator, photographer, and filmmaker. She has worked with and conducted research for media and arts organizations such as Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, Open Society Foundations Documentary Photography Project, United Nations, International Center of Photography, NAACP, Wallach Gallery, and many artists including Taryn Simon, Francesco Carrozzini, and Bayeté Ross Smith, to name a few. She also runs her own youth mentoring program at the Polo Grounds Community Center in Harlem.
Nothing would make her happier than to help an individual, family, or brand find their home. As someone who was born in New Jersey, raised in Beijing, China and moved around in constant flux, she developed an understanding for the importance of home and space at a very young age. Since moving to New York about ten years ago, she's made NYC her home.
Ashley attended Bryn Mawr College for Art History before transferring to Parsons the New School for Design to pursue her BFA in Photography. She completed her MA at Columbia University's Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race in American Studies in 2018, where she submitted her thesis as a documentary film.
