Yu spent most of his life as a visual artist, but was first introduced to dance through the Vocaloid fandom at the age of 14. He became involved in the furry fandom and began constructing costumes at 15 upon discovering the existence of fursuits through YouTube videos, including those of fursuit dance. Yu began actively practicing fursuit dance at the age of 18, drawing inspiration from a range of styles including lyrical, modern, hip-hop, J-pop, and breakdancing.
Yu is currently pursuing a college degree. He is also an active cosplayer and participates in anime and manga fandoms.
Yu constructs all of his own fursuits.
He currently owns four fursuits:
- Yu Puffin, his fursona, a blue tufted puffin. The most recent version of this fursuit was completed in January 2016.
- Gundahar, a marine iguana debuted in June 2015.
- Dynamite Zippencrash, a tan, red and blue red river hog completed in the summer of 2017.
- Lobo, a blue Mexican wolf named after Lobo the King of Currumpaw, debuted in January 2018.
