My self-summary

What I’m doing with my life
Recently returned to the Bay Area after a decade in the SE Asain jungle (and London) and trying to figure things out.
Biking around.
Looking for trouble.
Wondering where the Bay Area glam/avant-garde scene is.

Tetris, cooking, discussing developmental politics and collecting music from all over the world.

You should message me if
Any of this interests you.
