Ling's client list includes Alberta Ferretti, Steve Wynn, Aaliyah, Blue Man Group, Sade's bandleader, Janet Kardon (former director of the Institute of Contemporary Art and the American Craft Museum), and Monique Knowlton (art dealer). He has held teaching positions at Parsons School of Design and University of Nuremburg and has served on design juries at Interiors Magazine, Interior Design Magazine/Hospitality Magazine, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Columbia University, and the University of Pennsylvania.

The Essence of Ling's architecture is the artistic integration of space, form, light, and function enriched by materiality. As all projects are treated as unique, so too is Ling's creative vocabulary, tailored to diverse clients, sites, budgets, and programs. Ling's approach is a sculpted choreography of opposites, forming a dialogue of interlocking spaces and forms articulated in a crated use of materials, ennobling space and form through materiality and light.

Ling's ultimate goal is to create something never said before, in a timeless manner.
