About Me


Taipei, Taiwan


I'm originally from Boston, MA, US. Childhood me imagined adult me as a rock star, famous actor, or professional football player. I haven't lost that spirit...but I won't be a football player :)

Learning is a major constant in my life. I always feel the urge, sometimes impulsively, to learn more.


Life has purpose, but that purpose is not an end-goal. Someone once told me that humanity is like a helix. Its progress flows outward and inward, but always returns to the same point, just on a different level. I think that's a fitting analogy for life.
